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.
We are an international charity dedicated to supporting local peacebuilding.
In the world’s most fragile countries, we seek out local peacebuilders who are making a real difference – building peace from the grassroots up, preventing conflict in the places where it starts – locally.
They are disarming rebels, resettling refugees, healing communities, reviving economies. They work at great personal risk on crucial problems like child soldiers, women and conflict, youth and peace, political violence. They are the key to preventing conflicts and creating a lasting peace.
We find them, fund them, and promote their work to those in the wider world who can help with finance or influence.
