Peace Clubs

African Peace Club
“A Peace Club” is made of peace lovers and peacemakers who envision sustainable world peace through meditation and mindfulness practices. A Peace Club is a non-political and non-religious organization. It is also a community-based group of at least 10 active members, with no age limit. Peace Clubs in Africa create changemakers that promote sustainable solutions by combining inner peace with community projects to establish better and sustainable African societies. Peace club members meet on a regular basis to reflect and take action for positive social impact.

Peace Clubs | Impact

Through their activities, Peace Clubs INITIATE - IMPACT - INSPIRE and CONTRIBUTE to social positive changes using meditation and mindfulness practice.
In 2022, Peace Clubs’ activities reached 39,811 people all over Africa.

I have learned from the on-line program much more than I ever thought I could in such a short time. I am a much calmer person, much less stressed and have physical benefits from it. I used to have a lot of stomach aches; I was always clenching my jaws from being stressed and since I started meditating that is all gone. I also found that I am a nicer person to my friends and I am able to focus better on my work.

I think more than meditation you become more sensitive and you really act differently. So, the way you think is different. The question for me was like " Yes, I need to change this, I am doing this wrong, maybe I can change this, how can I, etc

Barbara Favetto


I was surprised at the experience and how it changed me with all the encouragement to work on myself. I saw that by working on myself I naturally wanted to be a positive example and wanted to see the positive values that we were working on in ourselves. I wanted to see that naturally being worked on and a way to achieve it in my immediate surroundings through meditation.

One thing which really helped, was getting rid of some habits that were not good. Like not talking in an endearing way. So it really helped me. It helped me to explore myself, know more and explore the changes within myself. It has given me some peace that I've never experienced anywhere, just getting in touch with myself.

You start feeling a lot different and you start behaving differently towards other people. It’s very interesting because it’s mixing very ancient wisdom and new technology and helping more people all around the world get connected to the inner peace

Alexander Suárez Parra


"I really like this self-development program, and especially the daily entries. This is the way to discover yourself, to evaluate yourself, to understand yourself better, and what is important and what is not so important like to have a good relationship with your family, with your friends, and to see goodness in others."

Anastasiya Lashuk


"The questions in the program help me to think about myself, and how do I really behave. It is so easy for people to say “I think that I’m good”. But when I asked myself I started to analyze myself, I become more tolerant."

Kardelen Yaman


"I learned the importance of being mindful about my speech, about my behavior, about my activities. It brings good results to be mindful, you are more conscious about what you do and then you have good results, good behavior, you give and you receive."

Imigul Cengiz


Thank you for this wonderful meditation. I absolutely lost the sense of time! I enjoyed the vibration of the mantra that helped me to still my mind and fill a bit of peace after a hard day of work. I’m so happy! I shared my meditation with my friend, and we have huge smiles afterwards.

Justyna Szczepaniak


Meditation helped me reflect about what I was doing in my life and who I was with and the kind of relationships I had, my actions, my speech, everything. It made me see the importance of just being in the moment and not constantly thinking about the future or about the past.
