Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders Competition: $4000 in Funding

Deadline: August 9, 2013

Are you a peacebuilder? Do you need some support to help you grow your impact and your organisation? If you meet the entry criteria, you can now apply to win the new competition, ‘Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders’. Peace Direct believes that in every conflict there are local organisations doing remarkable work to prevent violence and build peace. They have launched ‘Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders’, a new competition to find the best emerging peacebuilding organisations.


Four winning entries will be selected by 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 we 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.
