The establishment of PEACE seeks to implement programmes which are aimed at empowering the poor and marginalized people to support and improve their livelihoods. These programmes are implemented both directly and indirectly in association with other development agencies. PEACE designs projects that are innovative, appropriate, and locally adaptable and strives to strengthen the communities’ ability to participate in implementing such projects, thus mobilising resources for self reliance.
To ensure success of these projects, PEACE engages in productive performance related partnerships with other strategic organisations and institutions. These partnerships have helped in identification, planning and implementation of community programmes that enhance the social and economic livelihoods of the citizenry.
