About Peace Direct
Peace Direct is an international NGO that supports local peacebuilding in conflict zones worldwide. We have affiliates in the UK, USA and Germany, and programmes in 11 countries.
But Peace Direct is everyone who supports us and who we support. Someone once described us as ‘more like a school of dolphins than a whale.’
So Peace Direct is roughly:
- 12 peacebuilders and their organisations
- 18 local correspondents for Insight on Conflict
- 2,000 people who have given us money in the last two years
- 549 people who have volunteered and fundraised for us
- 11 staff
- Nine UK trustees
- Eight German trustees
- One United States board
- Five patrons
- And our one and only ambassador
When Gulalai from Aware Girls in Pakistan visited London in 2010, she was asked whether she had family in London. Her reply was, “Yes – Peace Direct are my family.”
