We will continue and expand the BEING IN PEACE Program with our current partners, among them: José María Pinto Duarte Public Middle School, Child and Youth Court of the São Paulo Justice Department in the development of Restorative Justice, Julita Foundation, Pauliceia High School, Assistance Association of Work Integration Ser Especial, and Citibank.

Fundação Lama Gangchen para a Cultura de Paz
Lama Gangchen Rinpoche, always ahead of his time, contemplates the Culture of Peace in a unique way.
Inspired by the Lama Gangchen World Peace Foundation, the Fundação Lama Gangchen para a Cultura de Paz was created in 2007, becoming then one of the social arms of Lama Gangchen’s work in Brazil.
We are very proud and happy to be part of this team that develops an inner peace education methodology, based on the teachings of the lineage, which are transmitted by Lama Gangchen and Lama Michel.
Education for inner peace is education for life. It proposes the development of physical and emotional balance, helping us to with all aspects of life in a more peaceful, harmonious, and happy way.
FLGCP believes that inner transformation of individuals, developing their positive, creative, compassionate, and peaceful potential is the most effective instrument to understand oneself and others, for collaboration and enrichment for peace. Fundação Lama Gangchen para a Cultura de Paz created Being in Peace, a non-formal education program focused on public and private schools, NGOs, institutes, foundations, professionals from various areas, families, and the community.
The core of this program is the Breathing and Concentration Meditation Practice – PRC, and non-formal education concepts, called Culture of Peace Guidelines. The following testimonials show us that we are building an effective path of transformation. Answers to the question: “What can you say about the Being in Peace Project at Julita Foundation?”:
“It is a set of very valuable educational tools, both for use with groups and for life.”
“It is very important in reaching the community we live in. The culture of peace makes us see that to defend ourselves from the aggressive day-to-day, we do not have to attack”.
“Very good, may everyone on the planet someday have the opportunity to feel the sense of peace, even where war is present.”
“An excellent work, because it has taught us that every day we can do better for ourselves and others. A view of peace helps us reflecting on the bad days as well”.
The Foundation’s main growth factor in 2018 is hiring some of our Peace Educators who until now have worked as volunteers, and who as qualified educators will become paid employees.
The budget is R$ 332.000,00 (83 000,00). Up until now, the revenue already secured of R$ 92.000,00 (23 000,00 €), through the established partnerships (Citibank Bank, Pauliceia High School, and AAIT Ser Especial), will guarantee the FLGCP monthly maintenance, a hired secretary, a part-time pedagogue and the subsistence allowance of volunteers.
Thus, R$ 240.000,00 (60 000,00 €) are required to complete the budget.
