During apartheid, Desmond Tutu kept hope alive in the hearts and minds of millions of South Africans. He shared his powerful vision that justice would come, freedom was unstoppable and one-day all South Africans would be free.

The Desmond Tutu Peace Centre will be a landmark institution primarily aimed at using the experience of the South African people and the example of Desmond Tutu to inspire a new generation of visionary peace builders. Its focus is to teach the extraordinary principles - practiced by ordinary people - that were able to guide South Africa from a legacy of violence to a cooperative peace.

The objective is not to memorialize one of South Africa's most famous sons, but to convert his unique leadership into the kinds of practices, approaches and tools that any individual can use to improve society through his or her own personal contribution.
