Romage Jean Louis, 11, seen here washing dishes at her home, is a Peace Pal in the southern Haitian village of Mizak. Peace Pals is a program of the World Peace Prayer Society, which promotes the message "May Peace Prevail on Earth" as a simple, universal expression to unite the hearts of all people in a common desire and hope for peace on Earth. Peace Pals provides a safe and nurturing environment for children to gather to play and learn lessons that organizers hope will lead to generational changes in attitudes about self-worth, care for the environment, personal health & hygiene, conflict resolution, respect for all persons and encouragement to be "peacebuilders" at all levels. In Mizak, Peace Pals is sponsored by Haitian Artisans for Peace International (HAPI).
