1995, in honor of the 125th Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi's birth, the government
of India launched the International Gandhi Peace Prize. Each year the prize is
awarded to individuals or organizations that have made a contribution towards
economic, political and
transformation through non-violence
and other Gandhian methods.
