The Peace Crane Project invites every student in the world to fold an origami crane, write a message of peace on its wings, then trade it with another student somewhere in the world. Classrooms, teachers, students, schools, community groups, families and individuals are welcome to join us.
The Project gives students the opportunity to express themselves, learn basic geography, strengthen their writing skills, and improve their hand-eye coordination. Participants are exposed to other cultures, given the opportunity to hear new languages, and see the world through the eyes of others. Most importantly it empowers youth to make a difference in the world and inspires them to lead us all to a more peaceful future.
