The Peace Pole Project was started in Japan in 1955 by Masahisa Goi, who decided to dedicate his life to spreading the message, ‘May Peace Prevail on Earth’ in response to the bombings on Hiroshima. Peace Poles are handcrafted monuments erected the world over as international symbols of Peace. Their purpose is to spread the message ‘May Peace Prevail on Earth’ in a different language, one on each side.

This website enables people around the world to map and locate peace poles in their area and those that they have encountered on their travels…

Project PeacePal is a social profit organization that seeks to ignite a generation of young people to create peace globally through the development of person to person connections across borders and over time. Through these connections can come an understanding of our common humanity, and the recognition of our similarities, creating a feeling of kinship and the resulting desire to help each other. The work of PeacePal is to provide an antidote to the inevitable conflict which arises when people are disconnected and see themselves as different from each other. We believe that sustainable peace is only possible in a world where we experience our kinship as members of the human family and find joy in helping each other.
