“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.

2How to choose my Peace Club’s name?
A Peace Cub name has to follow the same pattern which is “City name” Peace Club of “Country” and this full name will be shown in the certificate while the shorter name can be used in normal practice.
