2006. It uses Popoki's Peace Boods to promote critical thinking, imagination,
expression and action for peace through such activities as workshops, seminars,
camps and other events for people of all ages.
All funding comes from the sales of Popoki's Peace Books and donations. So far, workshops using Popoki's Peace Book and DVD have been held throughout Japan and in other countries such as Korea, Canada, South Africa, Timor Leste, Palestine, Israel, Singapore and the United States.
