The Real Stories of Peace

Welcome to our gallery of local peacebuilders. Real stories. Real Impact.

Peace starts with a story. Dive into our gallery, connect with the stories, and become part of our global movement for local peacebuilders.

Every peacebuilder featured in our gallery has a unique story to tell. From conflict zones to inner-city neighbourhoods, we navigate challenges and overcome obstacles to foster understanding, healing, and harmony. Our narratives are as diverse as the cultures and countries we come from, yet we all share a common goal: to create a peaceful and just world.

We refuse to be limited by narrow definitions. We are serious about lasting peace in our communities. We are peace. We are builders of peace.  This is us.

So, join us as we raise our voices. Join us in telling the real stories of peace. Join us in moving the wider world to act. Because peace starts here.

#PeaceStartsHere.
