We are a volunteer organisation dedicated to promoting a culture of peace by organising international voluntary projects open to everyone.

Join our movement and turn values into action!

Workcamps

Short-term voluntary projects aimed at breaking down barriers between people and develop intercultural understanding while supporting local communities.

Long-term volunteering

Projects that last from 1 to 12 months where volunteers live in another country and community, are involved in a local project, learning from different cultures and people.

Events and training courses

Local events that promote peace and intercultural understanding, training courses and workshops that build capacity to work to reach our vision for peace.

Online learning

Different online training courses hosted on our online learning platform, to give the chance to anyone around the world to learn about peace and gain tools to act for peace.

I really recommend volunteering programs! I’ve gained so much from taking part in different programs and it gave me a new perspective on what I can give to people as a part of my life here on our beautiful planet.

Tjan Daimon

Long-term volunteer from Slovenia

Being there makes you value much more what you have and makes you realize that there are people with problems much bigger than yours […] I can say that it is the best experience of my life!

Mitzi de Jesús Conejo Luna

Workcamp volunteer from Mexico

My volunteering experience has enriched me with practical skills and also allowed me to grow immeasurably on the inside – an experience I would never want to change and I am more and more grateful for.

Nikola

Long-term volunteer from Czech Republic
