OUR MISSION + VISION
The mission of the Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation is to use Desmond Tutu’s life and teachings to inspire young people to build a world of peace within themselves, peace between people, and peace among nations.
The Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation envisions a world in which everyone values human dignity and our interconnectedness. Real peace will prevail when there is a culture of peace in the USA and around the world. That culture originates in the hearts and minds of our youth, the future leaders and peace-makers of the world. Our programs are based on the teachings of Desmond Tutu who has dedicated his life to reshaping conversations about peace, equality, and forgiveness. The philosophy of Ubuntu guides us with its meaning of We are all connected. What affects one of us affects us all.
