When we connect with people different from us, it is easy to see that we are not so different after all

OUR MISSION is to enhance international understanding and friendship through educational, cultural, and humanitarian activities involving the exchange of ideas and experiences directly among peoples of different countries and diverse cultures.

OUR VISION is that a cross-cultural network of engaged and knowledgeable everyday citizen leaders will be an active force in creating and sustaining a more understanding world.

Six decades on, President Eisenhower’s vision of fostering peace through mutual understanding and respect among individuals remains at the heart of PTPI. Our mission continues to inspire members worldwide, evolving to engage a new generation in our global community. As a non-political, non-religious volunteer run organization, PTPI focuses on building international understanding through educational and cultural activities.

We’re dedicated to connecting people across cultures, fostering friendships that transcend borders, challenging stereotypes, and nurturing global citizens committed to making a positive impact.
