$4,000 from Peace Direct

Peace Direct is launching ‘Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders’, a new competition to find the best emerging peacebuilding organisations. Four winning entries will be selected by our expert peacebuilding jury. Each winning entry will receive:

  • $4,000 funding for peacebuilding activities
  • The opportunity to attend a Peace Direct peacebuilder conference or visit another peacebuilding organisation
  • Promotion of their work online.

In the longer term, Peace Direct will use this competition as part of our processes to find partner organisations that they can further fund and help to scale up their work.  The winners will be announced on the International Day of Peace, September 21.  This is a global competition. There is no geographical restriction on applications.

In order to be eligible to enter, you must:

  • be a registered organisation or community association, established for at least 2 years
  • be undertaking peacebuilding work: your organisation will be either a peacebuilding organisation or have peacebuilding as a substantial element of your work.
  • have a maximum annual turn-over of $40,000 or less
  • be locally based: Your organisation must be based in the country/communities where your work will be done. Your organisation should be an independent organisation, not an in-country or satellite organisation of an international NGO.

Deadline:  August 9th, 2013. However, they strongly recommend applying as early as possible to ensure the information is included correctly.

There it is, folks.  Go and get it!  Sign up on the right to receive blog updates to your in-box.
