Support women building peace today!

On our screens and in our papers, we hear stories about brutal conflicts tearing lives apart. The stories that don’t make the headlines, however, are those of the courageous people building safer futures for those around them. People like Gulalai.

The prospects for peace may seem bleak, but there are still many reasons for you to be hopeful.

One of these in that remarkable women around the world are taking real, sustainable steps towards a more peaceful future. Women like Gulalai.

Gulalai grew up in Peshawar in North Pakistan, where women are often not treated the same as men, and violent attacks are all too common.

Her parents believed in peace and that we should all be equal. The values she learned from them inspired her and her sister to set up their own organisation, Aware Girls, when Gulalai was just 16 years old. With your support, they have saved over 10,000 lives.

Without Gulalai’s bravery – and that of many others – the future might not look so hopeful. But they need your help to keep going. A gift today will help more women build peace around the world.
