World Peace Village







The Child and Family Research and Training Institute was founded as a nonprofit educational organization in Menlo Park, CA in 1986. We serve as a “Family Wellness” center where families of all ages and sizes can come to explore and experience the richness of family life. All the educational programs are researched, designed and piloted by the CFI staff. Some of these programs have been published and are currently used by groups all over the United States. The World Peace Village is an outreach program of CFI and was designed in 2002.
