Support Our Mission

Your generous gifts enable us to equip citizens of the world with the tools they need to pursue purposeful lives seeking peace as a solution to all they encounter.

If it weren’t for Soka’s generous financial aid, I wouldn’t have been able to pursue a college education in the US, let alone one that equipped me with the necessary skills to navigate obstacles peacefully. Thanks to their support, I’ve been able to establish a successful company alongside my husband. Our company purchases goods from farmers, employing regenerative soil replenishment techniques, and pays them above fair market trade value. This approach not only benefits the farmers but also enhances every aspect of the consumer cycle.
