The Carter Center
After serving as President, Jimmy Carter had a vision to address social and humanitarian issues. He formed the "Carter Center", an organization that became a tremendous force in promoting and taking action on humanitarian issues. To this day, he puts on his overalls and actively participates in building homes for the economically disadvantaged through his "Habitat for Humanity" program. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, Jimmy Carter stands as a force for World Peace--working from "bottom up" to create a wide base of meeting human needs.
