Guerrand-Hermès Foundation for Peace





Because the transformations that I am referring to involve an ability to be conscious, ... it is, in a way, spiritual, akin to an ascension of the human spirit. It is for this reason that the GHFP draws much inspiration from spiritual practices and wisdom of religions.
--- Simon Xavier Guerrand-Hermès, Founder and Chairman
GHFP seeks to understand some key concepts in peace, dialogue and human flourishing. By mapping out these conceptual landscapes always in terms of human-centred values we can develop and propose some new ideas in working towards a wider social consciousness of and concern for human-oriented transformation at many levels.  
Fostering solidarity and harmony between people enabling encounter and compassionate listening within safe spaces and through the engagement of the whole person towards mutual understanding, respect and harmony in society. We believe that solidarity and harmony among people is not only an emphasis in post-conflict divided societies, but also an important aspiration for all societies.
GHFP seeks to promote peaceful and humane culture creating space for genuine dialogue among people from diverse backgrounds and with different worldviews, beliefs and assumptions. Our facilitation of dialogue begins with an interest in the nature of dialogue, methodologies, ethics and the practical implementation of dialogue in diverse fields where encounters between religions take place.
Human-centred education for transformation our aim is to explore questions that leaders, teachers, educators and parents can use as a basis for understanding what education ought to be in the 21st Century. At the heart of this is an investigation into how to develop caring educational organizations and communities in order that children and young people can grow, thrive and flourish through engaging in learning.  
Sustainable livelihood for human development our work in the area of livelihood focuses on identifying innovative solutions to the problems of poverty and injustice, and seeking sustainable approach to human development and transformation, including stimulating entrepreneurial spirit and human flourishing. We believe that shifting the lenses through which to perceive well-being and growth can help humanity to transform the way we are on earth.
