Volunteers For Peace (VFP)
It is our mission to provide programs where concerned people can work together to help overcome the need, violence and environmental decay we face today. Workcamps are a microcosm of a world where nations join together to improve life for humanity. We believe workcamps are a practical way to both prevent and resolve conflict over the long haul.
