World Children's Festival 1999 (June 29-July 5)

Child artists from 50 countries participated in ICAF’s first international festival. They collaboratively made the spectacular World Mural (16 x 24 foot) in the presence of the First Ladies from Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Liberia. Nearly 50,000 people attended the festival, a majority during the July 4th Independence Day celebration on the National Mall.

The first ICAF Awards Ceremony at the Ronald Reagan International Trade Center was attended by cultural and educational leaders, including the First Ladies of Costa Rica, Ecuador and Liberia.

We are most grateful to Alyph Limited, Katty Guerami and Dr. Abdullah Basodan for their financial support.
