#GivingTuesday: the gift of peace

Happy Giving Tuesday!

 

It’s #GivingTuesday – a chance for you, your friends and your family to celebrate and give back to the people and causes close to your heart! 

This holiday season, we’re celebrating the tireless work of our local partners stopping wars and building peace – one person at a time. We’d love nothing more than for you to support their vital work around the world by donating to us this #GivingTuesday!

We’re asking you to give $12 (or more) to celebrate the 12 countries in which we’re supporting local people working to solve conflict from within their communities. 

 

Please, donate now

Your gift could help our Congolese partners rescue child soldiers from the bush before reintegrating them back into their communities. It could allow our partner in Pakistan to train young adults in conflict prevention and peacebuilding. It could allow people like Inuwa (pictured below), to find their own solutions to conflict.

Whoever it reaches: a donation from you today will allow us to provide people with the tools and skills necessary to build lasting peace within their communities.  

Peace is possible, and, with your support, we can build it together this holiday season!

What will the funds be used for?

 

  • To support local peacebuilding organisations that train people to tackle the root causes of violence, and rebuild lives.
  • To increase the capacity and skills of local communities finding their own solutions to conflict.
  • To publicise and share this work as widely as we can – to the public, governments, aid agencies and the media.

 

Together, we can enable local people to devise their own solutions to end conflict and build peace.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Oscar at [email protected].
