The project gives children and teenagers the opportunity to tell their story about the war and its consequences
The Scholae Mundi Charity Foundation, with the support of the Dilijan Community Centre, helps children and teenagers from Armenia to participate in "The Unheard Voices of Conflict: Stories from Around the World" competition of the British charity Never Such Innocence, and reveal their personal stories of the cruelty, pain, and losses inflicted by the military actions in the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh/Artsakh.
Five years ago, the Never Such Innocence charity came up with the international competition "Unheard Voices of Conflict and Service Children", dedicated to the victims of the First World War. The aim of the competition was to draw attention to the infeasibility of solving problems, even the most serious ones, by force. The competition was created for children and young people from 9 to 18 years old, so that adults could look at war, death and pain through the eyes of children. In its 5 years of existence, over 11,000 people from 47 countries have entered the competition. Children's stories about the war and the impact it has had on their lives and the lives of their loved ones provide another opportunity to raise awareness about the irreversible consequences of violence.
As part of their support for the competition, the Peace Schools Foundation and Never Such Innocence will jointly organise educational webinars at the UWC Dilijan International School and at public schools in Armenia.
There are four categories: poetry, art, song and speech. Applications are accepted via the competition website. Add the phrase "Scholae Mundi participant" in your application..
