Background


goal

Goal

The goal of the Peace Support Fund is to increase the likelihood of sustainable peace in Myanmar by supporting initiatives which increase trust, confidence, engagement and participation in the peace process, and which reduce inter-communal tensions.
Funded projects will seek to contribute to peace building in Myanmar through:

  • establishing and supporting platforms for dialogue, consultation and interaction between ceasefire stakeholders, and through increased engagement with and participation of affected communities;
  • contributing to meeting peace support needs under an agreed framework for the peace and national dialogue processes;
  • contributing to a strengthened role for women in peace-building in Myanmar and reducing the impact of violence and conflict upon the lives of women and girls; and
  • addressing and reducing inter-communal tensions and violence.
 focus

Focus - What We Fund

The Peace Support Fund (PSF) will provide funding to demand-driven, small-scaled and tailored initiatives which either:

  • provide direct, tangible support to the peace process; or
  • seek to directly contribute to a reduction in inter-communal violence.

Funded projects range in size and duration and focus on supporting cross-sectoral, political dialogue through, for instance, state and national level consultations, workshops, negotiation preparation and training, addressing peace information needs and similar initiatives. We invite proposals from a range of organisations, local, national and international, but especially encourage local initiatives and organisations. Projects must fall within the Criteria provided on the 'Apply' page.

At this time, initiatives must be planned for completion prior to September 2015.
If you are unsure, please contact us to make an inquiry.
