On September 21, 2011, World Peace Day, The Peace Project implemented one of the most dramatic social efforts in recent history by distributing 10,000 pairs of crutches and repair parts across the country of Sierra Leone. We're still getting crutches out to people in the most remote areas. Donate $25 now and change someone's life forever.
the peace center
Join us in creating Sierra Leone's first Peace Center -- a multi-use cultural and training facility that will revitalize the Aberdeen Amputee Community and be used as the basis for a community development model.
The Peace Team
Getting people working is a critical step towards sustainable peace. All of The Peace Project's initiatives are developed to move adults in this direction, but none more so than The Peace Team whereby we'll create training programs that get people working within months.
While planning, implementing and evaluating the impact of Operation Rise, The Peace Project's massive 2011 crutch distribution in Sierra Leone, we identified that getting crutches to those in need is simply the first step and that providing the resources to maintain the crutches is a necessary follow-on.
