Community developmentHuman rightsEducation and research

We are changemakers helping changemakers. PeaceGeeks is a Canadian non-profit group that builds technology partnerships with grassroots organizations to transform their efforts at creating lasting peace. Since the launch of PeaceGeeks in October 2011, we have successfully partnered with 20 grassroots organizations. Our partners advocate for peace and human rights in Egypt, Kenya, Uganda, South Sudan, Nepal, Indonesia, the Philippines, Palestine and the USA. Visit our website for more information about the PeaceGeeks movement! www.peacegeeks.org

PeaceGeeks believes in giving everyone a voice through the power of technology. We partner with and contribute to local grassroots organizations in developing countries. To keep our momentum going we have launched our third annual fundraising campaign! Our goal is $30,000!

Why We Love the Things We Do
PeaceGeeks believes in giving everyone a voice using the power of technology. We see that there are amazing breakthroughs in peace and human rights coming from all around the world. Unfortunately, not all these great stories are given the opportunity to be shared on an international stage. That’s where we come in!

Who are We?
We’re a non-for profit organization that partners with and contributes to local grassroots organizations in developing countries to advance peace and human rights. We work with our partners to provide the technology and training they need so they can share their stories with a wider audience and create a lasting impact.

As of today, PeaceGeeks has partnered with 20 non-for profit organizations in countries worldwide, including Liberia, South Sudan, Uganda and Sierra Leone, to name a few. These partnerships have helped make a positive impact and have amplified grassroots voices on issues ranging from war-affected youth to violence against women.

Our #Heroes4Peace Campaign
To keep our momentum going we have launched our third annual fundraising campaign! Our goal for this campaign is to raise $25,000 over the next 30 days to cover the project costs of at least 12 new partnerships in 2015. To make this goal more achievable the Black Foundation has generously agreed to match all donations. That means for every one dollar you donate you make the impact of two!
