Supporting local action against conflict
We believe that local people have the power to find their own solutions to conflict – and to build their own better futures.
Our mission is to help them make this happen.
In the world’s most fragile countries, we seek out dynamic individuals and organisations who are making a real difference, building peace from the grassroots up: people who are preventing conflict in the places where it starts – locally.
They are disarming rebels, resettling refugees, protecting the vulnerable, uniting communities and restarting economies. They work at great personal risk to prevent, resolve and heal conflicts, and break the cycles of violence.
We find them, fund their programmes, and promote their work to those in the wider world who can help with finance and influence.
You can help them too
