The health, development, and prosperity of any society rests on one prerequisite: Peace.
On the frontlines of every conflict, there are local people who have the skills, intelligence, and drive - and the trust of their communities - to broker peace from the ground up. Those who mediate, those who educate, those who champion an alternative to violence.
Peace Direct (www.peacedirectusa.org) finds, funds, and promotes the work of these extraordinary local heroes, who are making a tangible difference in turning the tide of conflict. Local heroes in Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Nepal, Kashmir, the DRC, and other conflict flashpoints across the globe.
