What is your vision of peace?
Who we are:
Our mission is to promote the practices of peace and spread the message of hope and good will using creativity to youth around the world.
Arts in education:
Extensive research has demonstrated that arts-education engages students in learning, contributes to higher test scores and reduces truancy and dropout rates.
“Yesterday was one of the best days ever at our school.
There was a feeling of peace throughout the entire school. Teachers all commented on it. Thank you for this marvelous project. We have already decided that we will do something similar every year as a school tradition. You have already made a huge impact on our school.”
