About Uniting for Peace and Mission Statement

Uniting for Peace was established in April 2011 to promote Peace, Security and Disarmament, United Nations Human Rights, International Law, Development and Poverty Reduction. Its approach to solving global threats and challenges is a holistic one. We advocate that hard and soft challenges facing the world today have to be dealt with the same urgency. It will be futile to be only spending most of our resources and time to fight terrorism and the proliferation of nuclear weapons and Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), if 30,000 children per day are dying of poverty and malnourishment whilst 7,000 people die daily of HIV aids.

The organisation advocates governments and the international community to have a holistic approach to solve the problems of poverty reduction, sustainable development, environmental protection and end to pandemic diseases to go hand in hand, along with a vigorous drive to combat terrorism and WMDs.

Uniting for Peace works with others for the principle goal of advancing peace in the world. It recognises that central to this goal, the scourge of war and armed conflict must be tackled. Furthermore, it recognises the interdependence of the world and thus attaining peace requires building bridges and promoting dialogue and peace education. Moreover economic growth, poverty reduction lifting the trade and other barriers, sustainable development, the respect for human rights and democratic institutions all play a role in the ultimate goal of lasting peace.

Most of all, it will require leadership at the domestic and international levels to act early, decisively and collectively against all these threats - from HIV/AIDS to nuclear terrorism - before they have their most devastating effect.

How We Do This:
- By hosting Conferences/Lectures/Talks
- Through Training and Capacity Building of General Public and NGOs
- Through organising Fundraising activities
- Publications/Newsletters/Brochures etc.
- Lobbying and Campaigning for Peace

Our Projects:

a. 4D for World Peace: 4D stands for Disarmament, Demilitarisation, Development and Democracy. It is a free forum for critical discussion, developing solutions and implementation of global peace and sustainable priorities for the 21st century.

b. Faiths for Peace: UfP believes that Interfaith events with Statements, Readings from sacred Scriptures, Prayers and Meditation, Music, etc. from different faith traditions can strongly affirm and witness to peace.

c. Education for Peace: This project includes production and dissemination of educational resources including books, newsletters, documentaries, events and the capacity building of general public to promote a culture of peace
