Founded in 2009, Global Peace Foundation (GPF) is an international non-sectarian, non-partisan, nonprofit organization, which promotes an innovative, values-based approach to peace building, guided by the vision of One Family under God. GPF engages and organizes a global network of public and private sector partners who develop community, national, and regional peace building models as the foundation for ethical and cohesive societies.
At the Global Peace Foundation, we believe a shared future is within our reach, and that our shared identity and common aspirations as members of the human family establish the basis for sustainable peace.
Global Peace Foundation affirms the importance of universally recognized principles and shared values as essential to building social cohesion within nations and the global community.
Among these principles are:
- All people have intrinsic value, dignity, and fundamental rights, as endowed by the Creator.
- Every person has, as his or her highest attribute, a spiritual and moral essence.
- Our human nature finds its fullest expression and meaning in relation to others.
- People develop their innate potential through their choices and actions. Freedom and responsibility are intrinsically linked.
