Welcome To Félix Houphouet-Boigny Foundation for the Search for Peace

The Peace Foundation is a not for profit organisation working to build peaceful relationships among people of all ages and cultures, from personal to global through education, research and action.

The Félix Houphouet-Boigny Foundation offers innovative and quality programmes, services and resources that are used in many schools, homes and communities - both in Cote d'ivoire and overseas. It helps to establish and maintain peaceful and non-violent relationships by teaching skills that encourage better communication, co-operation and non-violent conflict resolution.

The Peace Foundation draws on the knowledge, skills and energy of a team of highly qualified and experienced individuals who are committed to meeting the aims of the organisation - a number of whom are acknowledged both nationally and internationally for the role they have played and are playing in creating a more peaceful world. The Peace Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation and relies on public support for its work. It has been a membership organisation since it was established.
Félix Houphouët-Boigny

"Peace is not a word, it is behavior."

"Peace, which constantly needs exhortations, is a continuous acquisition, usually silent."

"The hungry man is not a free man."

"The sanctity of work also ennobles the one who carries the burdens or drives heavy machines, like the one who, in the silence of laboratories or offices, gives his task the best of his thought and care."

"It is easier to make war than to make peace."
The founder of modern Côte d'Ivoire
"Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defenses of peace must be raised."
