Who We Are

Carrying on Her Mission and Legacy

Pearl S. Buck was a Pulitzer and Nobel Prize-winning author and a driving force in humanitarian causes. She was a longtime advocate of cross-cultural understanding and racial harmony as a means of achieving world peace. We continue her legacy of bridging cultures and changing lives through intercultural education, humanitarian aid, and sharing the Pearl S. Buck House National Historic Landmark museum.

“The test of a civilization is in the way that it cares for its helpless members”

- Pearl S. Buck
