IPF project in Bangladesh

IPF project in Bangladesh

Applications for 2019 are now open!

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted for truth’s sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. (Matthew 5 v9-10)

When nonviolent peacemaking is given a real chance, it relieves suffering, invites atonement and forgiveness, and makes communities safer. In short, it transforms the world.

For close to 15 years, FoR has run an International Peacemakers’ Fund (IPF). It provides financial support to grassroots initiatives that work towards peace and reconciliation in war torn communities around the globe.

Projects are carefully selected, to ensure all use nonviolent methods to address causes of conflict, promote dialogue and build reconciliation. Click here to find out more about the projects we have supported in the past.
