Tents of Hope-Culture Day

The first Tents of Hope-San Antonio event was held May 30, 2008 at the Colonies North Elementary School Culture Day, where students from the fifth grade classes painted pictures of peace and hope for the people of Darfur. Students from the third through fifth grade classes were also given a brief talk about the displacement of the people of Darfur, then visited three centers to learn about the READ campaign, Bracelets of Life, and life in a refugee camp. Finally, the children were given a typical Darfurian snack. If you are interested in participating in Tents of Hope, please email Susan at
