Vice-President of the Board of the Tanimoto Peace Foundation 

My name is Hugues Garcia, I am an entrepreneur who has spent his life trying to get material stability looking forward to the day when I will be free to act more spiritually.

In 2013, when I read “Hiroshima”, John Hersey’s book published in 1946, depicting the lives of 6 characters living in Hiroshima before and after the bombing, I was moved and empowered by the courage these characters showed, especially Revenrend Kiyoshi Tanimoto.

That gave me a wake-up call saying that I had to do something for society and then I decided to join forces with the Tanimoto family to revive Reverend Tanimoto’s foundation and act for Peace through Art, Education and Inner Peace.
