Peace Direct

Peace Direct supports local peacebuilders in conflict zones worldwide. We fund these local heroes to stop violence, save lives and build a better future for their own communities.

Founded 2004

  • Mission statement

    Our mission is to stop wars and save lives by supporting local peacebuilders in conflict zones worldwide. We believe that local people are best placed to resolve their own conflicts, tackle the underlying causes of conflict and make peace sustainable. So we want to put local peacebuilders at the centre of international efforts to end conflicts and build peaceful, resilient societies - instead of relying on outside ‘experts’ from the international community.

  • Aims

    Peace Direct aims to:

    • We raise funds for life-saving projects by local peacebuilders that stop violence, rebuild communities and solve the long-term causes of conflict.
    • We publicise their work to those in the outside world who can help with funds or influence - the public, governments, aid agencies and the media.
