The Inner Peace Project

In order to achieve peace in the world we first need to achieve peace within the individual.

The ‘Inner Peace Day’ project is a non-profit organisation, established to help students around the world improve their self-esteem, attention and emotional wellbeing.

The project involves the efforts of hundreds of volunteers, bringing hope and practical help to children growing up in the challenging surroundings of modern life.

Through games, music, the visual arts and meditation, Inner Peace Day volunteers enable and encourage young people to develop more positive and harmonious relationships with themselves and with those around them. By encouraging children to look inside, a new awareness emerges where they can feel more connected to themselves and each other.
