In the world’s most difficult and dangerous conflicts, local peacebuilders are making a real difference. Every day they risk their lives to build peace and prevent conflict in the places where it starts – locally.

These local heroes can work in places outsiders can't reach. And stay long after the immediate danger has passed. They work tirelessly for the future of their country because it is, quite simply, their home.

Local people have the power to find their own solutions to conflict – and to build their own better futures. Together we can make this happen.
