25 Years of building PEACE
With your help we want to make it possible for communities to trust their governments and police; citizens to have an equal chance to make a living; children are able to walk to school without the fear of being killed.
Charity information: International Alert
International Alert is celebrating its 25th year in the peacebuilding sector and we need your help more than ever. Violent conflict kills and terrorises millions of people across the globe. Such violence tears societies apart and can disrupt social and economic development efforts for many years. It’s no coincidence that the world’s poorest countries are also those that are, or have recently been, mired in violent conflict. With your support we can help communities build lasting peace
We don’t build schools, we don’t build wells, we build PEACE! Your money will be used to help us continue to train people on conflict sensitivity, strengthen our current programmes and research, while also enabling the organisation to react and respond to new conflicts.
To help those affected by violent conflict look forward to a peaceful future
Activities» Help provide conflict sensitivity training and much much more
» Help create space and time for dialogue between opposing sides
» Giving women the chance to voice their opinions and highlight what is directly affecting their community
» Providing a platform where local people can voice their concerns and opinions
What success will look like
Conflict will always be around, but we are working towards living in a world where conflicts are dealt peacefully through dialogue not violence.
The impact of our work is that communities will be more able to anticipate and manage conflicts without violence so that more communities around the world can look forward to a forward to a future of lasting peace. Once there is peace and stability in a country, this is truly when they can take the first steps to lift themselves out of poverty. All this takes time - but we believe PEACE is possible.
40% of conflicts which have ended restart within ten years – but we hope to get to the root of the problem before that can even happen.

We work with community members to understand the heart of the conflict and get both sides talking to each other.
