Every day, people suffer and lives are destroyed because of violent conflicts. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Peace Direct is an international charity dedicated to stopping wars, one person at a time. In conflict zones around the world, we support local people to stop violence and build long term peace.
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.
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.
