The Problem

Every year we fold origami cranes in connection to the International Children's Peace project. We ourselves learn the powerful story of Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, and how it inspired a children's peace project that continues all over the world today. We share what we learn (the folding and the story) whenever we can.

Our Plan

Every year our Roots & Shoots groups learns to fold Origami Peace Cranes, as well as the story of "Sadako and the Thousand Cranes" and how it connects to the international child's peace project. We also have explored this story through the song by Fred Small called "Cranes Over Hiroshima". We share what we have learned with other groups and the public every chance we get throughout the year.
