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.

Testimonials

SDP has helped in my daily life. There's this difference inner peace gives that makes you see life positively. SDP has propelled that for me

Phoebe Kareem

I love the program because it integrates many things. There is the meditation, the explanations about breathing, the tips to do it better and I love that each session makes me question everyday situations. I hope I become an expert in meditating because it seems to me an excellent way to find myself, to help others and to be a better human being for this crazy world.

For me it has been better than painkillers, I feel relaxed and relieved of thoughts, I worry less now and I stay more conscious of my mind now.

What an amazing experience this was. I couldn't imagine that just in four days so much can happen - new friends, new experiences, and new life. I definitely recommend this to everyone out there. This is your chance not only to see and learn something new about the world, but to discover yourself.

Today I am a young woman politician in the local government, founder of a peacebuilding NGO, and feeling great about my role in the society. All this happened, because 2 years ago I was taught the culture of "Letting go". So simple and at the same time difficult to achieve. Try it for yourself!

Eleonora Begoyan

It was a great opportunity to start my inner peace journey with the team of professionals. It was a travel not to an another country, but to another world where you are happy, all problems are gone and you enjoy a friendship with others and yourself.

Andrii Lytvynenko

One more time it reminded us that the best humanistic qualities are all hidden inside each and everyone regardless of nationality, religion, culture or traditions. People forget about them under the influence of different life circumstances. For me meditation is the best way to understand myself and others and remember the values. I feel so grateful for the Bridge Fellowship and those who have arranged all this for others. Incredible and amazing job!
