Little Friends For Peace (LFFP) is a nonprofit committed to answering violence with skills for peace. LFFP's mission is to counter violence and contribute to a worldwide culture of peace by sharing skills to prevent, resolve, and transform conflict with individuals, families, teams, and communities. We hope to empower children and adults to build relationships through empathy and to solve struggles nonviolently through compassion and mindfulness. LFFP believes peace starts within: the more we practice personal peace, the more peace there will be in the world.
Our vision is the Beloved Community, a world where relationships are based on respect and acceptance, conflicts end in reconciliation, and everyone is safe, cared for and able to realize their unique potential. We spread our vision through Peace Camps, after-school clubs, and in-school classes for youth as well as Peace Circles, training, workshops, and the Peace Academy for adults.
