Every child should experience
laughter, compassion, and peace.

500 million people live in countries in conflict, many of them children. 

We are a thriving global learning community working to create peace in communities in conflict by training and supporting generations of peace builders. Together we can make a difference. Why is peace important?

We believe 

Youth-led cooperative play has the power to bring together people from different nationalities, religions, and backgrounds to find common ground, build friendships, and create a more peaceful world.
