The 1st Peace Ambassadors’ Training in Sabah

23rd August 2014

A bit more than 30 participants attended the first Blue Ribbon peace training in Sabah. This was an introductory training on peace values, and it was conducted in Malaysian national language. A few observers from Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur also participated in some of the activities.

Some drove for six hours to come to this full day Peace Ambassador training. A couple from Brunei who came to this training was very inspired to collaborate with The Blue Ribbon to run similar training in their countries. A teacher at a polytechnic in Kota Kinabalu, Ms Kristy Won, is now planning with the Blue Ribbon in conducting Peace Ambassador’s training at her school early next year.

Participants from Sabah also supported this peace initiative by purchasing patched batik tee shirts sewn by Mothers Support Group at Blue Ribbon vocational sewing workshop Lakeside, Singapore.
