A Global Vision and a Powerful Mission
Ask yourself what it would be like if every man, woman and child in every nation and continent on earth, from every religion and creed, could be united in peace. Our vision is both simple and ambitious, one flame uniting people worldwide.
The purpose of The World Peace Flame is to achieve peace through educational projects and practically supporting grassroots peace initiatives.
Peace Education in Action
A legacy of peace begins with children, which is why we have developed the Peace Education Package which is being offered to schools for free.
The key to lasting peace - Education
More than 80,000 children in nearly 1000 schools across 5 continents are now using the Peace Education Package. This is helping them to see and celebrate the diversity they see around them and encourages them to embrace the underlying unity behind what they see.
We run humanitarian projects in India which aim to empower people at all levels from medical camps to youth education programmes and with food distribution and clothing.
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
All over the world people are coming together to celebrate, raise awareness and make a difference.
