The   Hope    Project



The Hope Project is an agency offering consultancy and training in peace building skills and the creative handling of conflict. We also offer yoga training and materials to help with relaxation and inner peacefulness. We began the Project in 1994. We have worked mainly in our own area, the West Midlands of England, much of this work being in schools with the West Midlands Quaker Peace Education Project, We have also worked in other parts of Britain with day schools, special schools, teachers' centres, Education Authorities, Quaker organisations and meetings and other churches.

In Belarus, Ukraine, and Uganda, we helped to introduce and develop peace education in schools. John has also been involved with anti-landmines work and community peacebuilding in Western Uganda. Our programme in Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia and Makedonia ran from 1996 to 2013.   These initiatives are described on other pages of this website. We have also worked in Denmark, Ireland, Russia (Northern Caucasus), South Africa, Switzerland and USA.
