The Peace Crane Project invites every student in the world to fold an origami crane, write a message of peace on its wings, then exchange it with another student somewhere in the world. Classrooms, teachers, students, schools, community groups, and individuals are welcome.
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.
Are your students studying the life of Sadako Sasaki? Please consider reading our new book The True Story of Sadako Sasaki, co-written by her brother Masahiro Sasaki. Masahiro is answering questions from students reading the book. Please check it out HERE.
In addition to the Peace Crane Project, this year we continue to host CRANES IN FLIGHT, hold our annual CREATIVE BOOK AWARDS, and have a new T-SHIRT DESIGN CONTEST. Please check out these activities as well!
