Our Work in Action

We support people of all ages, all religion, all races, all cultures who may have an economic barrier that restricts their ability to travel.  These people have the gift of humanity in their hearts and use their talents to bring the world together.  We help people come together from different countries in order that they may get to know each other on a human level through Peace Camp International in the USA, India, and Uganda.
