A Powerful Mission with a Global Vision
Imagine if every man, woman and child in every nation and country, from every religion and creed, were united in peace. Our dream is as simple as its ambitious, one flame uniting people worldwide.
The World Peace Flame is dedicated to achieving peace through education and practical support of grassroots peace initiatives.
Peace Education in Action
A legacy of peace starts with children.
That is why we have developed the Peace Education Package which we offer to schools for free.
Education is the key to lasting peace
Approaching 1000 schools across five continents are using the package. That’s more than 80,000 children who are learning to celebrate the diversity they see around them and who are being encouraged to embrace the unity.
Our humanitarian projects in India aim to empower people at all levels from medical camps to youth education programmes and with clothing and food distribution.
Free Medical Camps
Doctors and Consultants give their time and expertise to help impoverished people in villages and tribal areas where we arrange the Free Medical Camps.
About 30,000 patients have received free medical care in impoverished communities in Gujarat, India.
Our volunteers serve people irrespective of creed and religion. We also support with donations of dentistry and medical supplies.
Many children in impoverished countries do not have what they need to go to school so they don’t get an education.
We’ve distributed over 14,000 education kits (pens, paper, books etc.) and also school uniforms, so that more children can go to school.
Plus, we’ve covered the cost of education fees for over 200 children and nurses.
Free Eye Clinics
Since the first medical camp started in 2005 we have provided well over 2000 cataract operations and 7000 pairs of free spectacles.
Each cataract operation costs a donor only €30.
“To see the joy in someone’s face when the bandages are removed from their eyes and they can see again is the most wonderful experience you could have.”
How to Get Involved
Take time for yourself, and begin to see the world around you benefitting.
Across the world people are coming together to celebrate,
to raise awareness and to make a difference.
Story of how the World Peace Flame was created
