Peace Direct

Peace Direct- Stopping wars, one person at a time

The world is battling war and violence, and deadly conflict tears across communities around the world. It touches and destroys lives from Paris to Peshawar. Our work has never been more urgent. Our Big Idea is to work with local communities to train people to build peace.

Situation

Every minute two people die because of war. Every day one in five of us wake up in conflict. Families forced to flee their homes, attacks on communities, girls who are scared to go to school, young boys forced into a life of fighting. This must stop. International efforts alone are not working, wars restart, conflicts continue and violence leads to further violence. Local people are not involved in resolving conflicts and they must be. But they need our support and funding.

Solution

Through supporting local people to stop conflict, one person at a time. They are helping rebuild lives, resolve conflicts, and stopping people from choosing a life of violence. We partner with local groups to help them train peacebuilders, giving them to the tools to build lasting peace in their communities. We will also promote local peacebuilders, so the international community sees that they can be an integral part of the solution. One person at a time, we will stop wars and violence.
