Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
Nonviolent Peaceforce is an unarmed, professional civilian peacekeeping force that is invited to work in conflict zones worldwide. NP works with local groups who invite NP to come into their country to foster dialogue among parties in conflict, provide a proactive presence and safe spaces for civilians, and develop local capacity to prevent violence.

Conceived by a group of participants at the 1999 Hague Appeal for Peace and constituted in the 2002 Convening Event in India, the growing international network of NP now includes 40 member organizations from Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East and the Americas.

Nonviolent Peaceforce works to achieve four overall goals:
• To deploy teams, learn from field projects, and build a body of expertise regarding large-scale nonviolent peacekeeping.
• To demonstrate to decision makers, opinion leaders, public institutions and citizens the productive role and impact that nonviolent international presence makes in areas of conflict.
• To identify, train and support peacekeepers through regional activities and trainings, and maintain an up-to-date roster of available professionals.
• To encourage and support efforts that foster lasting peace in conflict zones worldwide.

Hell Kathleen,

My name is Jamils Richard Achunji Anguaseh. I work for Global Welfare Association (GLOWA) Cameroon, a non profit organization dedicated to upholding the rights of children through education and training. We seek to transform society by empowering present day kids to be active human rights defenders in the future

I strongly agree with you the importance of the work of social workers in building sustainable peace. haven worked with traumatized victims of trafficking, rape, school based sexual violence, I strongly believe that no sustainable peace can be achieved anywhere in the world without promoting inner peace of the individuals involved.

I might be attending the CSW meeting this year and will like to meet you and be part of this very important side event.

Have a wonderful day and courage in the service of the world
