- Our Mission
- The ultimate goal of The Peace Stone Foundation is to
bring the world peace. We know this goal is not that easy to achieve
but we also know that we should initiate something.
NPO, "STONE FOR
PEACE ASSOCIATION OF HIROSHIMA" started to donate a so-called Peace
Stone to each Head of the State in the world to share the desire for
peace in 1991. These stones were actually hit by the atomic bomb in
August 1945 and were revived by the people in Hiroshima as a silent
witness of the tragedy which took 140,000 of lives instantly. As of
June 2009, approximately 100 heads have accepted the Stone, and they
are displayed in public.
As this worldwide activity expands,
providing opportunities for children to receive basic education has
come up as the necessity to pursue peace in a grass-root level.
Improving educational opportunities so that children can learn and
grow international understanding and harmonization, which is THE PEACE
STONE FOUNDATION believes as its mission.
THE PEACE STONE
FOUNDATION will make grants to support or assist educational projects
for children who can not afford to go to school. Its activity in
collaboration with the "STONE FOR PEACE ASSOCIATION OF HIROSHIMA" will
surely lead the way toward world peace in a long run.
