These shipments have gone to orphanages and hospitals and other relief organizations in Tsunami stricken American Samoa, South East Asia, Hurricane Katrina victims, orphanages in Africa, Afghanistan, Tibet, Sierra Leone, Baghdad, Mongolia, Pakistan, Guatemala, India, Jordan, Chile,and Armenia.
Peace Builders Inc. also teaches children peaceful resolution to conflicts and greater understanding for each other regardless of differences in race, religion and ethnic background. This is done through contemporary media: films, books and websites.
