The Olympic Games are originally a celebration for peace. Taking this into account, Peace Boat has organized different campaigns in Olympic host cities, making appeals for Peace & Social Justice.

In the lead up to the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, Peace Boat implemented a project to assist the Eritrean cycling team to participate in the Games. The campaign was a gesture of solidarity and encouragement to the newly independent nation, which had achieved independence only three years before following a 30 years civil war.
