PeaceGeeks partners with community leaders and organizations to understand the challenges they are facing, and collaborates with these stakeholders to create tech-based solutions that strengthen their efforts for peace and humanitarian action. Our approach is always community-driven — we believe that when communities affected by conflict and displacement have the tools to lead change on the ground, we as a global community can collectively respond to some of the world's biggest challenges.
Since our inception in 2011, PeaceGeeks has managed more than 70 projects in 26 countries and engaged over 1,000 volunteers around the world. Today, our partners include the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), International Criminal Court (ICC), Google, the Government of Canada, and the Province of British Columbia.
While the technical aspects of our projects may be varied, all of our work touches on these areas of focus:
Connecting Communities at Risk
Amplifying Voices for Peace
Strengthening Access to Justice
Engaging Global Citizens
