Quakers have long supported peace building and peace builders internationally.

What we do

    Israel and Palestine

    Quakers manage the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI), bringing people from around the world to the West Bank to offer protective presence to vulnerable communities and to monitor and report human rights abuses. They join Palestinians and Israelis who work in nonviolent ways for peace.

    East Africa

    Quakers in Britain aims to expand and deepen the influence and ability of grassroots peace activists in Eastern Africa to change the core conditions that lead to violent conflict.

    We help local change agents use strategies of active nonviolence to challenge corruption and abuses of power in Kenya, Rwanda and Burundi.

    This Light That Pushes Me

    An exhibition and book featuring peace builders from sub-Saharan Africa, all of whom have experienced some form of violence. Using photographs and personal testimonies, this exhibition traces the journeys that have transformed that suffering into a force for social change.

    Conciliation work

    Quakers have a long history of occasional quiet assistance in peace processes overseas in areas as diverse as Sri Lanka, Northern Ireland, Israel-Palestine and South Africa.
