COMPAZ Londrina is a 5-year-old organization. It started as an initiative of the Catholic Church with the aim to build peace in Paraná. Soon they understood that the xenophobia and rejection of some religions in the community had to be addressed by a diverse group. In frequent meetings, they study together, organize activities, establish partnerships with various segments of society and develop projects for education for peace. Some of their highlights include: the passing of laws contributing to peace in the city; interfaith campaigns and shared actions; restoration circles; trainings and courses. They are also involved in health and social services to the community such as food distribution, disease prevention talks at schools, book fairs and a big celebration for International Day of Peace.
We promote a culture of Peace, through Peace Education Projects.
