The reach of Global Peace extended to Malaysia in 2010 in conjunction with the Global Peace Festival followed by an official registration in 2011 as Global Peace Festival Malaysia Berhad.
Global Peace Foundation Malaysia exists to address the gaps in our social system through innovative ways to embrace diversity and acts as a catalyst for social integration alongside the efforts of the government, private and social sector.
Global Peace in Malaysia has evolved over time from running solely on intercultural celebrations to addressing vital social obstacles hindering the growth of our society towards greater heights.
Global Peace in Malaysia is known as Global Peace Foundation Malaysia in alignment with our international branding efforts. However, all legal documents should addressed as Global Festival Malaysia Berhad while communications will remain as Global Peace Foundation (Malaysia).
Global Peace and its chapters around the world functions to realise the three pillars of fundamental beliefs, which are –
• Interfaith understanding
• Strengthening family values
• Promoting the culture of service
Here in Malaysia, our team focuses on developing youth leaders through the culture of service, transforming formal education learning environment and bridging the needs of communities to available resources and information.
Peace building is ongoing effort that addresses the root cause of potential social obstacles such as violence, social inequality, discrimination, intercultural conflict and etcetera.
Most of our projects are sparked by the thought of improving lives and socially cohesive communities. Our efforts translates thoughts into actions, actions into everlasting impact. For example, the Character & Creativity Initiative that was founded and piloted in Kenya is now implemented worldwide to help transform classroom learning environments.
Global Peace Foundation Malaysia is partially funded by our international office, based in Washington D.C.
Locally, we raise funds through our initiatives and projects that is channeled into our programmes.
Global Peace Foundation is a non-religious and non-partisan organisation. In fact, we are an organisation that engages people from all walks of life and of different racial and religious backgrounds.
The vision of “One Family Under God” is not religious in nature. It is our way of explaining that humanity is connected to each other as one big human family, originating from the same creator.
