The Christmas Challenge may be over for this year, but it’s not too late to support our work! You can still help local people building peace around the world to gain skills and resources, by donating to Peace Direct at the link below.
What will donations be used for?
- To support local peacebuilding organisations that train people to tackle the root causes of violence, and rebuild lives torn apart by war.
- 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 help local people to devise their own solutions to conflict and build peace – one person at a time.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Oscar at [email protected].
