Peace Direct is currently accepting applications for the 5th edition of its Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders Awards 2017 to reward innovative peacebuilding organisations with the potential to build sustainable peace in their communities.

  • Community support: able to demonstrate community support for project, for example through voluntary efforts of community members.
