Peace Trip to be Aired on TV Maria

APRIL 28TH 2011

The video documentary Peace Trip, which tells the story of CFA’s Peace Camp 2, will be aired by TV Maria on April 30th and May 7, 2011 at 5:00 pm. This is the second Peace Camp video to be shown by TV Maria, which also broadcast the award-winning documentary of CFA’s first Peace Camp in 2006, entitled “Dear Peace”.

From different backgrounds and cultures, 48 high school students representing four schools in Metro Manila recall on video their life-changing experiences during the exciting six-day peace camp held in the summer of 2009. They recount moments of enriching interaction, deepening friendships, evolving impressions and attitudes. In a series of workshops and activities, they are able to create a kaleidoscope of paintings, photographs, dramatic scenes and songs, all conveying messages of peace and posing challenges to themselves and their peers to sow seeds of harmony and unity.

Peace Camp 2, which was on the theme “Christian and Muslim Youth: Spreading the Message of Peace and Unity”, brought together Christian and Muslim high school students from Ramon Avanceña High School, Culiat High School, Taguig National High School and Nazarene Catholic School. This was organized by the Communication Foundation for Asia in cooperation with the CBCP Episcopal Commission on Interreligious Dialogue, National Council of Churches in the Philippines and the Young Moro Professionals Network, with the support of the Evangelisher Entwicklungsdienst (EED)

TV Maria is carried by several cable channels, including SkyCable Ch 160, Dream Satellite Ch. 12 and Global Destiny Ch. 91.
