Lagos - Galaxy 4 Peace, the non-profit youth-led organisation, has begun preparations for International Day of Peace.
Galaxy4Peace Co-Founder, Precious Ajunwa, stressed that this year’s objective was to demonstrate the importance of cooperation as people come together – a partnership to further create and advocate for a more sustaining enabling environment for a culture of peace.
“As citizens who are conscious of the challenging times Nigeria and the world faces, we need to continue participating by taking up shared responsibilities, to wisely construct and build our collapsed environment for a better world for all,” she said.
“We are glad that peace still prevails, which is evident and can be felt in the numerous peace projects all over the world, despite the many difficulties and conflicts that abound and we must confess, it doesn’t get better than this as peace-builders!”
