The Carter Center was founded in 1982 by former US President Jimmy Carter and wife, Roselynn Carter. It’s a non-government and non-profit organization with the goal to advance human rights and alleviate human sufferings.

The entrance fee is USD8/per person.

We had the whole theater to ourselves to watch a short film.  The place was very quiet at the time we were there.

At the end of this visit, I learned that Jimmy Carter was a successful peanut farmer. a Senator, a President and a Nobel Piece Prize winner. He is well known for his peace keeping work and volunteer work in the Habitat for Humanity. He is a great man.

  1. Actually, Jimmy Carter was the Governor of Georgia before he became President. He was a Georgia State Senator before that, but the presidency was the first national office he held. It’s like being in the BC Parliament, then the BC Premier before becoming the Canadian Prime Minister.
