At the heart of our work is a powerful conviction: to create a just and peaceful society, we have to work together.
It’s not only the right thing to do, it’s the only thing that will work.
Together, we’re creating a world where people uprooted by conflict and disaster have a safe place to belong.
Right now, we live in a world of ‘us’ and ‘them’. It means that every day, more of us are forced from our homes by conflict and disaster.
Together, we’re working to reduce displacement and create safety, dignity and belonging for uprooted people.
We’re doing this by backing displaced people through local partnerships and initiatives, building unity and transforming the system.
For uprooted people, the journey home is long, hard and full of uncertainty. Promise to be by their side every step of the way, and together, we’ll find the courage to keep going – until everyone has a safe place to belong.

More than encouraging an end to violence, the UN’s theme this year represents an ideal that is close to our hearts at Act for Peace: caring for one another as we would care for ourselves.

Our local partner helped Daniyel’s family get citizenship documents so they could safely return to their home in Sri Lanka. Now, his children can attend school and his daughter can access the medical care she needs.
