Help our Symbolic Doves of Peace Travel the World

Sponsor a Peace Mala Dove and Become a Friend of Peace Mala

We are living in difficult times with much fear, ignorance and violence in our world. All the more need, therefore, for Peace Mala - a multi award winning educational project for global citizenship and peace which began in Wales and whose head office is based in Morriston, Swansea.

Peace Mala released 14 small symbolic doves made from wood painted in the Peace Mala colours and each carrying a Peace Mala bracelet (along with other items) during a ceremony that took place in our peace garden on 30th April 2015. Click here to view a gallery of photographs taken at the ceremony.

For the ceremony we were joined by The Deputy Lord Mayor of the City and County of Swansea, the Mayor and Mayoress of Neath Port Talbot, Regional Chief of Police, Bishop Tom Burns of Menevia, representatives of several faith communities and pupils and teachers from some of our local Peace Mala Accredited schools.

We were also joined by teachers and supporters from outside of Wales.

Some of our symbolic doves will travel for approximately three months. Others will travel for much longer. During that time we hope they will raise awareness of the work of Peace Mala with schools, youth groups and community groups wherever they travel to in the UK or in other parts of the world.

We have already been informed that three of our doves have travelled to the USA. Others will be travelling to Ireland, Holland, Italy, Cyprus, Israel, Africa, Hong Kong and Japan.

One of our doves will be the Inter-Faith Dove of Peace and will travel between the religious and faith communities of South Wales, starting with the Abrahamic faiths first. It will then travel to Manchester where the Naqshbandi Sufi Order of Islam will be the first to receive it before passing the dove on to other faith groups in the city.

The journeys of the 14 doves are being tracked to provide an exciting geography project for schools and youth groups. This information is already being published on Facebook, Twitter and our website for everyone to follow.

Click here to view a gallery of some of the photos that have been sent to us from various people and locations.

Below is our interactive map of the world which shows you where our doves have travelled to:

Each dove is being sponsored on its travels, thereby bringing financial support and security for the future work of the Peace Mala educational charity.

Sponsorship of the Symbolic Doves of Peace
Each of the 14 symbolic peace doves is being passed on from sponsor to sponsor in the hope of generating financial support for the Peace Mala charity. Our idea is that as the 14 doves travel on their journeys, they will generate income that will make Peace Mala's work and future more secure.

Doves may be sponsored by people becoming 'Friends of Peace Mala' with Regular Giving Monthly or an Annual Donation. Another option is a 'one off' Direct Donation to sponsor a dove. Please download the form for your particular choice of sponsorship from the following list and follow the instructions below.
Regular Giving Monthly (individuals)
Annual Donation (individuals)
Annual Donation (groups/organisations)
Direct Donation (individuals/groups/organisations)

Whichever option sponsors choose, Peace Mala will be very grateful for the support.

What to do if you decide to set up sponsorship for one of our Symbolic Peace Doves:

  • Let us know immediately that you wish to do this and send us a copy of your sponsorship form (the two attached forms will be linked to here. We will then let you know which numbered dove you can expect to receive and who will be sending it to you.
  • When the peace dove arrives, we ask that recipients let us know at once so that we can keep track of where the doves are and publish the information on Facebook, Twitter and our website.
  • If schools, faith groups or organisations receive our doves, we would like them to have a whole school assembly or at least a meeting to raise awareness of the peace dove's arrival and the work and vision of Peace Mala. We hope they will also read out the Global Peace Prayer which will arrive with each dove.

Our Supporting Peace Mala Online page shows you ways of supporting us both at home and from abroad

Please contact our office if you wish to support this initiative and sponsor one of our doves.

Peace Mala - An inspirational idea from Wales

peace mala ®

Peace Mala is a multi award winning project for peace that I began in 2001, in response to the racial and religious bullying of pupils in my school that came out of the 9/11 aftermath.

A Peace Mala is a symbolic double rainbow bracelet that promotes friendship, respect and peace between people of all cultures, lifestyles, faiths, beliefs and none. It is a vision for the future. Wearing the Peace Mala is a promise to help create a better world.

When creating the design for the Peace Mala bracelet I was aware that the rainbow is an important symbolic link between heaven and earth in many cultures. Rainbows are rare and magical and double rainbows even more so. I also realised that the rainbow design would appeal especially to children and young people. Interestingly, when Peace Mala was launched in the UNA Wales Temple of Peace in Cardiff on Wednesday 27th November 2002, a double rainbow appeared in the sky after the ceremonies had finished. Those of us who were present felt it was an auspicious sign.

The Peace Mala bracelet comprises of fourteen coloured beads with a central white or frosted white bead strung between symbolic knots. The central white bead represents the wearer. The final single bead is used as a toggle to bring the bracelet around the wearer's wrist. This represents unity, harmony and peace.

Peace Mala focuses on the Golden Rule. Its intention is to educate and remind everyone that this rule is recognised by many scholars, teachers and philosophers. It is also universal to all compassionate faiths. Simply stated, it is:

"Treat others as you would wish them to treat you."

This is the central message of the Peace Mala bracelet. Its intention is to cut through all forms of prejudice, to confront bullying, to support human rights and to celebrate what makes us different from each other. Fourteen spiritual traditions, along with their individual versions of the Golden Rule, are represented on the bracelet.

Peace Mala reminds us that we all belong and that communities filled with colour and difference make life more interesting and exciting.

The word 'mala' is Sanskrit and means 'garland of flowers'. In the East a mala is a string of beads used in meditation or prayer as each bead or 'flower' focuses on a prayer or mantra. Our mala is different. It's purpose is not for devotional use though it may be used in that way if the wearer so wishes. The rainbow beads on this mala of peace focus on the Golden Rule. They also represent the human family in all its glorious diversity and Divine potential.

Peace Mala is a non-political, non-religious charitable organisation. We do not support any political party, movement or belief system over any other. Our aim is to contribute to education for global citizenship by inviting all people to treat each other with respect regardless of race, colour, religion, gender, sexuality, size, age or ability. Our compassionate wish is for people, animals and the environment to be at peace.

Peace Mala Accreditation for Schools, Youth Groups and Community Groups is awarded when seven areas of action have been completed successfully as outlined in the teacher, youth or community leader self assessment form available on our website. These seven areas fit into the heart-centre of a school, youth group or community group's values system and are in line with the objectives and vision of Peace Mala.

Peace Mala is totally inclusive in its approach. With Peace Mala Accreditation everyone is encouraged to engage in exciting activities which remind us that we are all inter-connected and need each other.

peace mala dove

As a teacher of World Faiths, I've known about the Golden Rule for many years. In the aftermath of the events of 9/11, when some pupils in my school were being bullied because of their race or religion, I remembered the Golden Rule of all faiths. This inspired me to create the Peace Mala - a symbolic bracelet which would help young people understand the fundamental rule that all compassionate faiths share. I hoped that it would educate my pupils in a fun way and help stop the bullying. To my great joy it did! It spread through the school like wildfire.

When I told members of the different faiths about my idea, they responded very positively and later helped us to launch the Peace Mala project at the WCIA/UNA Wales Temple of Peace in Cardiff, using the Golden Rule as a message of peace for our communities and our world.

With my prayers for a more compassionate world,
Pam Evans

Peace Mala and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

The vision and work of Peace Mala clearly aligns with this UN Convention. Click on the UN Logo opposite to download a document outlining this.


The Peace Mala is a fashion item to wear on the wrist and also a practical teaching aid which can be used with youngsters to help promote awareness, tolerance and respect between all communities.

Members of the original Peace Mala Youth Team

Each coloured bead on the Peace Mala represents a spiritual path or faith and carries the universal peace message known by many people as the Golden Rule. This rule encourages us to treat others as we wish to be treated. By focusing on the Golden Rule, people of all faiths can cooperate with one another without having to participate or believe in each other's particular belief system. This is a basis on which believers of all faiths and spiritual paths can work together for peace and mutual respect.

Running through the peace mala is a simple thread which holds all the rainbow beads together. This may be called the Golden Thread of Spirituality which connects us all through the love in our hearts: acknowledging the Golden Rule and our spiritual unity opens up the pathway to peace.

The Peace Mala is a vision of the future which celebrates diversity, while promoting unity, awareness, tolerance, compassion, forgiveness, and respect. Wearing the Peace Mala is a promise to help create a better world.

Main aims of Peace Mala
  • Education for global citizenship through the promotion of understanding, respect, friendship, tolerance and peace between all communities, cultures and enlightened, compassionate faiths.
  • Peace Mala supports human rights, confronts bullying and all forms of prejudice.
  • Peace Mala raises awareness of issues of global interdependence and encourages active compassion by learners that will effect positive changes locally and globally.
  • It is important for young people to learn that the diversity of the human race should be celebrated and not feared. Making and wearing the Peace Mala will give youngsters an opportunity to take part in this wonderful project for world peace. It will also introduce young people to our plural community of diverse cultures and faiths. Young people can learn that communities filled with colour and difference make life more interesting and exciting.

    We hope that the Peace Mala will stimulate interest and encourage youngsters and adults to find out more about the faiths represented on it.

    We hope that teachers and leaders of faith communities will join in this initiative and help spread the message of love, respect and peace through places of worship, Sunday Schools, Youth clubs, schools, colleges and other centres of learning.
