This Tuesday, September 21, under the leadership of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (Minustah) and UNESCO, the United Nations in Haiti commemorate the International Day of Peace with the launch of the CD "Vwa Ayiti Pou Lapé" (Voices of Haiti for Peace), result of 18 months of collaborative work between James Germain, Emeline Michel and Beethova Obas, renowned Haitian artists who have held workshops for over 200 young singers and musicians of sensitive areas from 10 cities.

The objective of this initiative : encourage creativity of young people and make born these songs for Peace. As part of this project funded by the UN Mission, the young people worked with artists on writing and composing music for peace, workshops on nonviolence, visual communication, gender and human rights in different departments. At the request of these young messengers, the direct result of this work, which has been possible thanks to the collaboration of the Tamise association, a partner of the Minustah was the production of a CD of songs created during these workshops.
