PeaceGeeks is an international non-profit that supports human rights organizations to effectively increase the visibility of their work, amplify voices on the ground, and engage citizens to make real change in their communities by connecting them to practical tools and a volunteer base of over 200 skilled professionals.
We match organizations up with the right geeks they need to leverage technology to reach their communities and collect data, reporting on critical issues in their communities, and affect change.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
We focus on grassroots organizations because they understand the issues affecting their communities. They are more likely credible among their citizens. They are in the best position to affect change and their impact can be sustainable in the long run.
WHO ARE OUR PARTNERS?
Since the launch of PeaceGeeks in October 2011, we have successfully partnered with 13 grassroots organizations in Egypt, Uganda, South Sudan, Nepal, Indonesia, the Philippines, Palestine and the USA working on issues such as engaging men in ending violence against women, challenging impunity for sexual harassment, youth peacebuilding and building the capacities of women peacebuilders.
HOW CAN I HELP?
We need $20,000 to grow our organization so we can work with more grassroots organizations to make change on issues that matter in their communities.
We want YOU to help us empower our partners and reach our goal for 2013-2014 to partner with 16 grassroots organization, an increase of 11 partners.
