in Central Africa, Ivory Coast, France and Switzerland

Because of the conflict in the country, no group can get together, and many children live in a very difficult situation. Yet, often, the children who are part of Tapori continue to be friends, even if they are divided by the war: Some children try to get news from their friends and to help them. But others had to leave the country and there are no news of them. In the comic strip «BA A BA» by Yvon and Benold, one of the heroes says: " I ask all my friends, Muslims and Christians, to become builders of peace."

Let s discover the beautiful songs of the Tapori children in Central Africa:

We THANK all the children from Central Africa for their messages and efforts to build peace. We are not forgetting them.

"We, the children, can bring back Peace if we stay all together." (Naomie)

"In our village we only have one water fountain to get drinking water... so all the children have to be all together in order to keep peace." (Babia)

"I am at peace when I bring back fish for my family...and when I am together with friends." (Calèbe)


A new Tapori group was born in GBINTOU at N`GATTAKRO in the central part of Ivory Coast. About a hundred children got together in their neigborhood of Banco 1. It’s great news and we welcome them warmly! The children from Colombes in Abidjan drew a Village of Peace and sent us messages.

"PEACE is not a WORD but an ATTITUDE" (Adama)



In Aix en Provence (France), the children watched together the movie «Come with us.» They imagined new adventures for the Friendship Train in different countries like India, Palestine, and other African countries. And in Marseille some children wrote minibooks about their lives.

In Epinal, Toulouse and also Aix en Provence, France, some children participated in the construction of a Village of Peace.

"PEACE means to be at ease and not to be sad." (Ambre, Epinal)

"I would like everybody to board the TRAIN" (Myriam, Aix en Provence)


In Geneva, 150 children came to the Villa Yoyo - Charmille - and attended various workshops. They built elements for the Village of Peace, and fruit and tree bark for tree of the rights for all children.


How to build a world for all children ?

Every individual has rights

Children, especially, need to be protected, and hence, have specific rights as well. The Declaration of the Rights of the Child was adopted in 1989 by the UN’s General Assembly.

Children from various countries have sent us messages encouraging us to think about children’s rights.

“We are crying because there is no peace in our country. We do not study, we do not eat. There is so much war, we do not have parents anymore, no more friends.” (children from the Democratic Republic of Congo)

“To live in peace, I need my family. It is what makes me a happier child.” (a child from Bolivia)

During Universal Children’s Day, last November 20th, we welcomed you to have a think about:

How one builds a united and fair world for all children?

And complete the following activity :

arbre des droits The Tree of Children’s Rights

Draw your fruit on children’s needs :

1. Alone or with someone else, have a think about what a child needs to grow?

2. Draw your favorite fruit

3. Write every need on the fruit

Now we welcome you to have a think about: What actions do you take to make your fruit grow?

Let us know by writing on the roots or the bark of the tree, what actions you take to ensure that everyone leads a better life, and what you do to make this world a better place.

Send all your fruits, roots and bark to the following address :
