The coronavirus outbreak has been challenging for us all, but particularly for peacebuilders. Conflict didn't stop as the coronavirus spread, meaning their lifesaving work has never been more dangerous. Your donation today will support people and communities building peace through this pandemic.
Two people die because of violence every minute. One in five of us wake up in a warzone each morning. Conflict is a disease, and some communities may never fully recover from it. Top-down, international efforts alone are not working. Wars restart, conflicts continue and outbreaks of violence create more violence. For too long, local people have been prevented from resolving their own conflicts. They're the solution; we need to let them lead. But they need our funding and support to do so.
Peace Direct supports hundreds of peacebuilders working around the world to rebuild lives, resolve conflicts, and stop people from turning to violence. We partner directly with local groups, helping them to provide their communities with the skills, tools and knowledge necessary to build and sustain lasting peace. We also offer these partners a global platform, ensuring that the international community increasingly sees them as integral to the successful resolution of conflict.
