International Alert is celebrating its 25th year in the peacebuilding sector and we need your help more than ever. Violent conflict kills and terrorizes millions of people across the globe. Such violence tears societies apart and can disrupt social and economic development efforts for many years. It’s no coincidence that the world’s poorest countries are also those that are, or have recently been, mired in violent conflict. With your support we can help communities build lasting peace.
We don’t build schools, we don’t build wells, we build PEACE! Your money will be used to help Alert continue to train people on conflict sensitivity, strengthen our current programmes, while enabling us to react and respond to new conflicts.
The impact of our work is that communities will be more able to anticipate and manage conflicts without resorting to violence. Once there is peace and stability in a country, citizens can take the first steps to lift themselves out of poverty.
