Children are agents of peace
We build peace with and for children by weaving resilience through their communities. Peacebuilding contributes to good governance, sustainable and equitable economic development, peace and reconciliation, and civic empowerment. World Vision supports, promotes and listens to children and young people in conflict areas, enabling them to mobilise for peace.
A more peaceful world
We are making progress. From Bogotá to Beirut, peacebuilding helps communities protect and empower children affected by violence. World Vision uses integrated peacebuilding approaches in fragile contexts to contribute to the healing of conflict-affected communities.
Our tools help these communities resolve conflicts, heal broken relationships, and nourish more just systems and structures.
UN Security Council votes to support young peacebuilders

Do No Harm for Faith Groups: Christian-Muslim Edition
This manual is designed for facilitators of the ‘Do No Harm for Faith Groups: Christian-Muslim Edition’ workshop for partners. The participants in these workshops are religious leaders and faith-based organisation (FBO) staff who work closely with the host organisation. The workshop relates Do No Harm (DNH) principles – also known as Local Capacities for Peace (LCP) – to faith teachings.
Do No Harm
World Vision uses the "Do No Harm" approach (also known as "Local Capacities for Peace" or LCP) to integrate conflict-sensitivity wherever it is relevant. "Do No Harm" is a tool first developed by Mary Anderson and published by the organisation CDA. World Vision is a founding member of the project that developed this tool.
Learn more about how we use the Do No Harm tool across the globe.
World Vision pursues peace for and with children and adolescents. Around the globe, World Vision equips young women and young men to be agents of peace in their communities. World Vision's approach empowers children to be agents of change, healing, and peace, among their peers and in their communities.
