International Day of Peace marked in Tonga
Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 23/09/2019
Tonga Girl Guides last week joined several countries in marking the international day of peace.
Halaevalu Palu from the Association says, the aim of this year’s program is to help youth be at peace while combatting the negative effects from climate change.
Palu adds, this year is unique as youths are included in addressing the issues of climate change.
Last week’s program included a “WALK FOR PEACE” parade from the Association along the Vuna Road in Sopu.
Other programs included awareness programs where the girl guides planted trees and held a campfire program, including a quiz, all to mark this special day.
The theme for this year is – “Climate Action for peace.”
