Application for $3,000 Seed-Grant | WPI’s Mindfulness Grant Programme. Application Closes March 31st,2019.
World Peace Initiative (WPI) is an international non-profit organization headquartered in Thailand. Our activities are based on the firm belief that world peace can be achieved, if each of us works first on achieving our own inner peace and then shares it with our family, friends, and community. World peace can then be achieved by using this model on a global scale.
WPI has organized 64 fellowships for young leaders from all over the world, Peace Summits, and meditation retreats worldwide. WPI also trains certified meditation instructors, making sure that meditation guidance is of high quality and easily accessible to local communities around the world.
It is evident that this is why they are launching a grant program which aims at encouraging mindfulness-based social projects at the community level. All non-profit organizations, youth leaders, social entrepreneurs, peace activists, and anybody with an idea are eligible to apply for WPI’s Mindfulness Grant.
