"I believe that through any simple contact with children, as adults and parents we can come to know our own essence and purpose. That is why I chose to use the silent rakugaki art pictures of children as a tool of communication, to convey their will and presence, and re-awaken our own innate sense of benevolence".
  ~ Unissograff artist and founder ca37

From its inception, life carves out a constant rhythm (the principle)… growing, meeting others, parting, joy and sadness, and occasionally rage.

And thus, from a state of nothingness, we form the shape of beauty (life).

"Principle of Life - Benevolence_Charity" is an artistic representation of its theme song "Charity", by Japanese composer, pianist and Unissograff Ambassador Mari Akamatsu.

The design is a collage of the rakugaki art drawings - based on the theme of "what I love most about my hometown" - made by the primary school children of Preah Put village, which sits by the minefields on the border of Cambodia and Thailand, together with pictures drawn by Unissograff artist ca37.

Terra Renaissance logo image

Unissograff™ generates funding to support the education and well-being of children in the minefield villages of Cambodia, and the social rehabilitation of young people who were engaged as child soldiers in the civil conflicts of Uganda.

Currently all donations generated by artwork created from the rakugaki drawings made by children in Cambodia and Uganda are made to Terra Renaissance, an officially certified NPO organisation based in Kyoto which stations its people on the ground in the Kingdom of Cambodia and the Republic of Uganda to actively support the people of these aforementioned areas.

This way we know that our donations are 100% used for the purpose with which they were intended, supporting the areas they were intended for.

Certified NPO Terra Renaissance was established in October 2001 with the aim of "realizing a society (world peace) where all lives can exist in safety and peace".

Terra, means "earth" in Latin, while Renaissance refers to "regeneration, reconstruction" in English. The name "Terra Renaissance" therefore represents "revival and revitalisation."

They aim to address the four issues of "land mines", "small weapons", "child soldiers", and "peace education" by simultaneously operating international cooperation at sites around the world while conducting enlightenment and proposal activities in Japan.
