One component of a Peace Boat visit to a port can include the delivery of support goods for sustainability. These goods, such as computers, school supplies and bikes are gathered by volunteers from across Japan and transported onboard the ship. Contributions reflect the actual needs of local communities, as determined through consultation with Peace Boat’s partner organizations. Peace Boat members personally deliver the goods to the community in question, with the objective of understanding the needs for, and use of, the goods and building friendships. This work is coordinated by the Peace Boat project team United People’s Alliance (UPA).
