Peace means more than the absence of direct or physical violence. Building peace is a long-term process to achieve justice and security, and help communities to manage conflict without violence.
Peace building involves helping communities to reduce the risk of lapsing into conflict, to strengthen national capacities at all levels to manage conflict, and to lay the foundations for sustainable peace and development.
Act for Peace works with project partners around the world to promote peace and stability. Countries that are able to provide all their citizens with opportunities for education, access to health services and work, as well as safety and justice, are less likely to experience violent conflict.
