Act for peace is the international aid agency of the National Council of Churches in Australia. We work with partners, wherever conflicts occur, empowering communities to:
* reduce poverty through community food security, livelihoods, health and education programs
* protect refugees and displaced people by managing safe refugee camps
* prevent conflicts through facilitating peace, reconciliation and disarmament processes
Our ecumenical partners provide life-saving assistance for more than 500,000 displaced people and more than a million others living in extreme poverty. They perform this work in many of the world's most conflict-affected areas such as Sudan, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Burma, Sri Lanka, Iraq, Palestine, East Timor, West Papua, as well as in the Pacific.
We seek to provide partners with growing funding and technical assistance on conflict management and protection.
