Peace Education and Community Empowerment (PEACE) is non-political, non-sectarian social welfare organization recognized and registered with the Pakistani government. Founded in 2004, PEACE is based in Sindh Province and works to promote global dialogue, women’s rights, and community/youth empowerment in local communities. While the majority of PEACE work takes place in Sindh Province, the organization’s network spans in Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, and other parts of Pakistan. In 2013 PEACE partnered with Global Nomads Group, GNG, to provide local expertise and coordinate implementation of virtual exchange programs in multiple sites throughout Punjab and Sindh provinces and in Islamabad.
