The Friends Service Council launched the "Peace Encouragement Programme", with a talk, a vote for the best three Peace Encouragement postcards (designed by the Friends Service Council and WAVE), the national PEP Dohori contest, and a street performance. The PEP is intended to be a long-term, ongoing project that will offer forums for talks and youth discussions, poetry and musical competitions in schools as well as year-round sales of the Peace Encouragement Postcards at a discounted rate. (2003) In 2004, FSC organized a speech contest with prizes in the high school level on the topic "Role of Students in the Peace Building Process" on 21st September 2004, and on "School is a Peaceful Place." (2004)

World Peace Prayer Society representatives organized a program to commemorate the UN International Day of Peace on September 20. Their Campaign Against Violence wished peace in memory of the ten thousand souls who have lost their loves in the last eight years of violence in the country. The program was done with lighting thousands of candles wishing Peace in Nepal soon. "May Peace Prevail in Nepal." On Sept. 21, another program was organized by UNDP, wishing Peace in the country and around the world, with many Peace songs sung by Buddhist monks. (2004)

YSP Nepal organized three days of programs for IDP in 2004. Schools and Colleges were visited (Hari Siddhi College, Padma Kanya Secondary School, New Summit College, Hindu Vidyapeeth-Nepal and Namuna Machchhindra Secondary School) and talks, prayers, and interaction were held on the topic "Peace for Youths" Their hope is that "the infinite strength that the youths have could be energized and that energy would be harvested for the noble cause and sprung the fruit of fraternity, brotherhood, coexistence, and PEACE."
