PEACEBUILDING

Helping children live in security

We build peace with and for children by weaving a fabric of resilience through their communities. In the long term, peacebuilding should contribute to good governance, sustainable and equitable economic development, peace and reconciliation, and civic empowerment. World Vision empowers children and youth in conflict areas, educating and mobilising them for peace.

A world where all people are peacebuilders

 

We are making progress. From Bogotá to Beirut and from Bujumbura to Banja Luka and beyond, peacebuilding helps communities protect and empower children affected by violence. Our tools aim to help these communities resolve their own conflicts, build capacities to heal broken relationships, and nourish more just systems and structures.

But there’s more to be done. We don’t define peace as the absence of conflict, but the abundance of shalom. Psalm 34:14 urges people to "seek peace and pursue it". This ancient Hebrew term, shalom, connotes abundance, equality, respect, justice, well-being, and of course, peace. Peace is a concept shared across many faiths.
