Local fundraising groups
By organising a local fundraising group you can bring your community together to lend support to other less fortunate communities across the globe at risk from human conflict and natural disaster.
How you can help
Your community can play a vital role in helping Act for Peace by organising local events and fundraising activities with other volunteers. Events can be as large or as small as you like, from a street sausage sizzle, to a local fair or a rugby match between suburbs. It’s a chance for you and your local community to act as global citizens and engage with a diverse global grass roots network working to promote peace and ease the suffering of vulnerable communities. Act for Peace will support you throughout the entire process, with all the advice you need for a successful local fundraising event. In this way your community can make a major contribution to the lives of those living in conflict or victim to natural disasters.

More ways to take action
Help keep families at risk from landslides safe by providing training in disaster risk reduction in schools. Training helps children to identify risks and warning signs of landslides, and teaches them how to keep safe if one happens.
Take the Act for Peace Ration Challenge and eat the same rations as a Syrian refugee during Refugee Week (19-26 June 2016). Raise money to support refugees who have lost everything, and challenge perspectives – including your own.
Right now, thousands of innocent people are fleeing Syria every day to protect their families from bloodshed, violence and death. We need your support to provide emergency relief packs to the families fleeing in Syria.
