An inspirational idea from Wales
Peace Mala is a multi award winning project for peace that Pam Evans began in 2001, in response to the racial and religious bullying of pupils that came out of the 9/11 aftermath.
Our Project is an ethically guided "non profit taking" organisation and a British registered charity.
Peace Mala focuses on the Golden Rule: "Treat others as you would wish them to treat you". Its intention is to educate and remind everyone that this rule is recognised by many scholars, teachers and philosophers.
A Peace Mala is a double rainbow symbolic bracelet that promotes friendship, respect and peace between the faiths and all people in our world. It cuts through all forms of prejudice and celebrates what makes us different from each other.
It is a vision for the future. Wearing the Peace Mala is a promise to help create a better world.
Using Peace Mala in the Classroom & Workshop
Peace Mala Accreditation
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.
It is important for young people to learn that the diversity of the human race should be celebrated and not feared.
More information about our accreditation process is available here or from the Accreditation section in the navigation menu at the top of the page.
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.

Help our Symbolic Doves of Peace Travel the World
Please consider becoming a sponsor and guardian of one of our fourteen little symbolic doves of peace.
As our doves travel the world, we hope that those who receive them will raise awareness of the work of Peace Mala with schools, youth groups and community groups in their area and with people they meet. Schools and groups who engage with our project for world peace can become Peace Mala Accredited and join our growing global community. The travels of our doves are being tracked on our interactive world map. Photos of our doves 'in situ' are being posted by supporters on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Your financial support and friendship will also help the future of our charity become more financially secure into the future.
Let us all be instruments of Peace, Hope and Healing. Together we can make a difference.

Founder of the Award Winning Peace Mala project for World Peace
Pam Evans is the founder of the Peace Mala. She is an honours graduate of the University of Wales and is an experienced teacher of World Faiths. Pam worked for over twenty years as Head of Department of Religious Studies in a Carmarthenshire school in West Wales.
Pam is committed to inter-faith dialogue for peace. She sees this as a vital process in the current world climate of fear and misunderstanding. Her creation of the Peace Mala was certainly born out of the 9/11 disaster but was also influenced by personal experience and witness of intolerance and prejudice.
Peace Mala is a non-political organisation. We do not support any party, movement or belief system over any other. Our aim is to contribute to education for global citizenship, by promoting respect, understanding and peace between communities, cultures and enlightened compassionate faiths.
Peace Mala supports Human Rights, confronts bullying and all forms of prejudice. Our compassionate wish is for people, animals and the environment to be at peace.
Anyone may wear a Peace Mala. If members of political parties, religious groups or peace movements choose to wear Peace Mala bracelets, this does not mean that Peace Mala endorses their cause. Peace Mala stands for total compassion for all without exception, and does not take sides with anyone against anyone else.
