History of Paz y Bien

Paz y Bien is a non-profit organization which promote peace through education and cultural exchange. Founded during the El Salvadoran Civil War by priest Juan Luis Genoud from France, who wanted to be poor among the poor. He admired Saint Francis of Assisi, who often greeted others saying “Peace and Goodwill” (Paz y Bien!) Juan Luis Genoud wanted “Peace and Goodwill” to become embodied in himself and the people that he lived among.
