Why not host this touring exhibition and raise funds for the children of Syria.  ACN Portraits of Faith is an exhibition of drawings created by Syrian children as part of a peace initiative by ACN project partners.

Last year, over one million Syrian children of all faiths signed a petition urging the West to support lasting peace in their country.

The young people also drew a picture illustrating their love for their country or their daily experience of life in war-torn Syria. Both their petition and drawings were presented to the United Nations and the European Union on the International Day of the Child 2016.

You can help to raise funds and awareness of our work in Syria by hosting the exhibition and organising a coffee morning to run alongside. Why not explore the Portraits of Faith with your pupils and exhibit their artwork/response too.

This exhibition will tour Scotland throughout 2017 and 2018.
