It’s a project aiming at creating “the Biggest Painting in the World”
by sewing together the paintings by the children in the world.
This is how the project started.
Hiroko Kawahara, our president, was working on self-support of 10,000 women
in the poorest area of People’s Republic of Bangladesh in ‘90s,
and found that their children were unable to go to school
and had never written letters or drawn pictures. At the time,
Hiromi Inayoshi, a Japanese graphic designer, encountered those children and
wanted to give them a drawing experience.
Kawahara wanted all the children of those women to draw pictures,
and had 13,000 children paint on 1,000 pieces of 1m x 10m cloth,
which were sewn together by 1,000 mothers to create a 100m x 100m painting.
Since then, the project to join the children’s paintings has been going on both
in Japan and in many countries in the world.
Through this project, we hope to nurture peace-loving spirit in the children of the world,
regardless of countries, religions or ethnicities, to widen their views of the world,
and to foster momentum to preserve the beautiful environment of Planet Earth.
