Giving to Peacifica will help us to build peaceful futures for people
across the Pacific, like these kids in Oecusse, Timor Leste.
Peacifica's inaugural fundraising appeal
Give now to help promote peace in the Pacific
Since our founding in 2017, Peacifica has achieved a lot with very little. We are a respected advocate for a peaceful Australian foreign policy and we're setting up programs with partners in Solomon Islands. At a time when the Pacific is more important than ever, our work counts.
For the first time we are asking for your support. You can help to take our field projects from concept to implementation, to further strengthen our advocacy work, and to invest in the organisation itself. So please consider becoming an inaugural donor. You can give securely through GiveNow and 100% of your donation will come to Peacifica. If you would like to discuss other ways to support us, please contact us. Thank you!
Pacific islanders today face a new set of threats to their peace and security.
Peacifica needs your support to help ensure a peaceful future for the region and for Australia.
Pacific islander communities are working for a peaceful and secure future but face a number of threats to their peace and stability. Several places, including Fiji, Solomon Islands, Timor Leste and Bougainville have a history of violence and political turmoil. Many countries are dealing with the effects of competition for scarce mineral, forest and ocean resources. All Pacific territories experience some of the world's highest levels of violence against women, and all are feeling the effects of climate change. Each of these is significant in itself, but together they increase the risk of violent conflict.
Peacifica - building peace in the Pacific
Peacifica was established in 2017 and is the only Australian organisation dedicated to building peace in the Pacific. We believe that promoting and sustaining peaceful societies is a critical challenge that Pacific Islanders and Australians must meet together. We recognise that many Pacific islanders have been working for peace for many years, and we are ready to help.
Peacifica works with partners in the region on peacebuilding projects and advocates for a peace-focused and just foreign policy in Australia. Although we are new, we have got off to a great start. We have a number of emerging partnerships in Solomon Islands, Fiji and Timor Leste. In 2019 we will launch our first field projects with some of these partners, building awareness and capacity of peace issues, researching the effects of climate change on communities, sharing information and building connections between peace practitioners and activists across the region.
Our unique expertise has been critical to the success of our advocacy, which has been very effective. We are recognised and respected by Australian government policymakers, and have offered advice on the climate change and national security, the Sustainable Development Goals and the overall shape of Australian foreign policy.
