Guerrand-Hermès Foundation for Peace

The Guerrand-Hermès Foundation for Peace (GHFP) is an international thinktank and peace NGO. The work of the Foundation is underpinned by the belief that peace is a human concept and can only be achieved when people are in touch with their own humanity. Inspired by this belief, the GHFP’s core aim is to explore ways for humanity to flourish within individuals and communities and to promote broader social transformation.

As a peace think-tank, the GHFP launches inquiries, both conceptual and empirical, into key issues of human concern. As an international NGO, the GHFP seeks to collaborate with global partners in convening dialogue spaces for deep encounters and mutually enriching conversations as well as in supporting and sponsoring projects that help catalyse positive changes at the grassroot level.

The GHFP has been advancing the concept of Human-Centred Education and supported relevant worldwide educational programmes for over 25 years.

Senior Fellow

“Spirituality has long been identified as one of the most important factors that structure human experience, beliefs, values, attitudes and actions. Thus, educators and caregivers must take spirituality seriously, and prioritise child’s spiritual development from early childhood on, and take all opportunities to nourish their spiritual growth.”
