Peace Direct

Peace Direct is an award-winning, international NGO supporting local people in some of the most challenging conflict environments worldwide. They are based in London, UK, and have offices in Washington, DC and New York. Peace Direct believe that local people have the power to find their own solutions to conflict. Their mission is to help them to make this happen. Local people are the key to preventing, resolving and healing conflicts. They are the best way to break recurrent cycles of violence and make peace last. And increasingly they want to move away from depending on outside help, towards building their own futures. In addition, Peace Direct publishes Insight on Conflict, providing information on local peace-building organisations in areas of conflict, advocating international development that prioritises the views and leadership of people and organisations in the countries affected, over those of outsiders from the international community. So often, war and violence dominate our headlines. They see lives destroyed, communities torn apart, the gutted buildings of bombed out towns shadowing over rubble graves. But there is a different story. A story crafted by remarkable people living in war zones who believe that something can be done to stop the violence. They are joined by a growing family of passionate, determined people from all over the world who believe this too: donors, supporters, activists, students and many others. They work with these people to help local communities build peace in over ten war torn countries.
