Friends Service Council (1927- )

Awarded the Prize “for in recognition of its great contribution to the peace of mankind.”

An organization founded in Great Britain in 1927 and committed to foreign work. Its three primary strands are missionary activity, international service, and relief work. In all of this service, Quakers stress that the work they have felt able to undertake has been of modest proportion and that they have been more concerned with personal relationships than with large-scale operations. They have stressed, too, that their service springs directly from the personal concerns and insights of individuals, tested by the corporate guidance and judgment of the group, and that they are drawn to this work as an expression of their peace witness.
