After successfully facilitating the Peace Education Program (PEP) seven times in the small Balkan country of Montenegro, volunteers are breaking for the summer before starting the workshops again in October. In response to popular demand and the enthusiastic invitation of two host organizations, there are already three more PEPs scheduled into 2016.
Prem Rawat recently spoke at a pair of special events in Portugal, addressing business executives, political leaders, and inmates on the subject of personal peace.
Thanks to the generosity of 806 donors, The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) recently raised more than US$167,054, including $47,000 in matching funds, for its peace initiatives around the world.
Last year the Peace Education Program (PEP) was offered in 249 correctional facilities across the globe, helping inmates harness their own inner resources to live more peaceful lives. The program began in U.S. prisons and is poised for further growth, thanks in part to outreach efforts at a range of regional and national conferences.
