4Peace 1World Airs on TV Maria


The video documentary 4Peace 1 World is to be aired by TV Maria on April 4 and 16, 2014, 9am and 8pm and on April 17, 2014 at 330pm. This is the fourth Peace Camp video to be shown by TV Maria, which aired the three previous peace documentaries, “Dear Peace”, “Peace Trip” and “Peacebook”.

As one united voice at the close of CFA’s 4th Peace Camp, 40 high school students chanted “Our Dream: One Nation in Peace!” The young peace advocates, representing two schools in Manila (Ramon Avanceña High School and Nazarene Catholic School) and two schools in Cotabato (Cotabato City National High School and RVM-Notre Dame College of Cotabato), urged people to work together in forming circles of peace that will create ripples of unity, cooperation and mutual understanding across religions, regional groups and economic status throughout the country. The scene captured in this video took place during the culminating activity of the six-day Peace Camp organized by the Communication Foundation for Asia in Sta. Mesa, Manila.

From May 28-June 2, 2012, the campers explored various media platforms to create peace messages that articulate their dreams of a country where citizens will be proud of their heritage and will strive for peace, equality and freedom.

The project was organized in cooperation with the CBCP Episcopal Commission on Inter-religious Dialogue and the Young Moro Professionals Network.

TV Maria airs its programs on Dream Satellite’s Channel 12, Sky Cable’s Channel 160, and Global Destiny’s Channel 91.
