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?
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.
What if conflict arises, not from the war around you, but from the war within? A recent practice peace session in Cebu, Philippines educated local teens about mental health, providing inspiration for them to pursue their dreams, and identifying the factors that will make or break their goals.
This April, thanks to trainer and regional coordinator Archana Magar, aspiring peace builders in Nepal will have the chance to learn about Play for Peace and the skills needed to bring peace through the power of play.
Last year, Play for Peace worked with Texas A&M's Conflict and Development Foundation to bring laughter and joy to children in Guatemala. It was a truly inspiring experience for both the children and those leading the session.
Any time, day or night, Play for Peace is happening somewhere in the world. In 60+ communities around the globe—each with its own diverse characteristics, talents, and resources—our work is transforming lives, all while bringing richness and creativity to our diverse global learning community.
