Non Violent Peace Force provides unarmed field personnel to bring dialog, instead of fighting to countries such as Sudan. It took me all these years to learn that famines were caused not by a shortage of food per se but caused by war.
As an unarmed, paid civilian protection force, Nonviolent Peaceforce fosters dialogue among parties in conflict and provides a protective presence for threatened civilians. With the headquarters in Ferney Voltaire (France) and an office in Minneapolis, NP field teams are presently deployed in the Philippines, in South Sudan, Myanmar, and the Middle East. Our field staff includes veterans of conflict zones, experienced peacekeepers, and those new to the field with the right combination of experience, skills, aptitude, and attitude. Nonviolent Peaceforce (NP) is registered in the US as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and in France.
