Projects for Peace
This is the eight year that Methodist University students have been invited to participate in 100 Projects for Peace. The invitation is extended to selected American colleges and universities within the Davis United World College Scholars Program (of which Methodist University is one). It is an opportunity for all undergraduates to design a grassroots project for peace that they will implement during the summer. Through a competition of over 90 campuses, the 100 most achievable projects are selected for funding at $10,000 each.
MU has been participating in the Peace Projects since 2004, with three MU projects approved the first year. So far, MU students have completed projects in eight countries and covered issues of clean water/sanitation, literacy, health, sustainable food production, and restitution of peace. Our students have built wells, started schools, provided health education and care, built greenhouses and helped war victims reestablish their homes and small farms in a war torn area.
