Just DO It!

"What can we do to promote world peace?" "Go home and love your family." ~~MotherTeresa

If you want to make a difference in the world, start with the community you are living in, and MasterPeace gives you the chance to start the change chain in the world. That is exactly what people in Gambia, Philippines, Kenya did, they started their journey with MasterPeace inspiration to spread peace in their own community.

In Gambia, our MasterPeace Club Gambia celebrated the international day of Peace in the garden of the Town Council. Drama performance about environmental war was presented in collaboration with the Green Tech. Poetry reading about peace featured the celebration attended by around 150 persons. The festival hosted different musical entertainments and acrobatics involving various Gambian music bands and solo artists representing their own communities. The artistic groups ranged from Afro-manding music, Reggae dance hall, and traditional music from Pa Mboob, Gambia´s Stevie Wonder, Doctor Shaka, Hard Breaka, The Bright Star Band and lastly The Kambeng Band from Brikama.

In Kenya, MasterPeacers gathered people at Mathare slum grounds one of the most hit areas in Nairobi by post election violence. They served their community by collecting garbage and cleaning-up the slum, symbolizing cleaning of vices that lead to conflict. With the participation of Teens of Hope initiative, they also planted 45 seedlings in the slum. They also, organized a football tournament along with different musical performance, to involve more people and share their dream and peace culture.

In Philippines, Students of Tagoloan Community College in Baluarte, decided to start a MasterPeace club inside theier university. The students are majoring in Tourism and Hospitality Management. Therefore, they decided in celebrating the International Day of Peace in the best way they know, and in three very innovative ways; ReciPeace, where peace was promoted through innovation of international recipes which revolve around the dual theme of peace and nutrition, this included artistic bread showpiece, main course preparations, cake decorating, fruit and vegetable carving. Judges considered the creativity of the contestants to promote “international peace” in the menu as well as the “nutrition” that it provides.

MasterPeace (masterpeace.org) gives you the opportunity to become a co-owner, by obtaining a license to develop MasterPeace activities in the frame of a MasterPeace Club. MasterPeace Clubs are the arms we are using to encourage dialogue, togetherness and social sustainability throughout small local neighborhoods and global regions of international conflict, and via involving Music and Art in our celebrations for peace.

MasterPeace Club will foster your own creative peace-building initiatives. Join the change Chain by starting your own MasterPeace Club in your country, city, or neighborhood.

Wonderful slogan: "Don’t over think peace, just start with actions!"

"The evil that is in the world almost always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence if they lack understanding."

-- Albert Camus
