On Wednesday, July 3, 2024, we held the "Volunteers' Perspective on War: Boots Made of Ceramics" event.  As members of the ALF project and S&G volunteers, we created ceramic boots reflecting the children’s feelings about war and peace under the guidance of Ceramics Instructor Figen Ertem. This meaningful event took place at "Kilin İzinde Seramik Perisi."  As a representative from Bosnia and Herzegovina, it was a great honor for me to participate in this project. Through this process, I had the opportunity to better understand the children's inner worlds and the impact of war on them. Being involved in this project not only encourages art and creativity but also contributes to the emotional and cognitive development of children. The drawings and ceramic boots created by the children deeply affected me, as each piece reflected their inner worlds and emotions. At the end of the event, I was immensely pleased to see the positive impact we had on the children's artistic and personal development. This project has become a source of great pride for children's rights advocates, highlighting the message of peace. The children's ceramic works and project experiences will serve as a lasting source of inspiration for all participants.
