Pacific Peoples' Partnership (PPP) is a Canadian NGO devoted to working in partnership with peoples of the South Pacific and First Nations of Canada to promote sustainable development models that empower communities while respecting traditional knowledge, cultural integrity and the fragile eco-systems upon which they depend.
Since its inception in 1975 PPP has also worked to educate and engage Canadians on global issues, delivering many dynamic and successful public engagement projects while creating opportunities for Pacific Island representatives to share their culture and unique world views.
Our past programs have included: Indigenous Peoples Abroad Programme (nearly 100 Interns placed in the South Pacific); WAINIMATE (Women’s Association for Natural Medicinal Therapy); Fair Trade: Bad Business or the Foundation of Global Prosperity? and Shifting Tides: Indigenous Responses to Global Climate Change.
PPP has long recognized the commonalities of experiences and struggles shared amongst Indigenous peoples of the South Pacific and the First Peoples of Canada. Our programmes seek to facilitate links between these two communities in an effort to stimulate an exchange of knowledge, ideas, experiences and strategies that strengthen mutual efforts for change.
PPP’s current programs and activities include:
Papua: Land of Peace – Civil Society Leadership in Conflict Transformation: a civil society strengthening initiative to enable the work of five Papuan civil society organizations in Manokwari, West Papua, Indonesia.
Pedaling for Papua is an international bicycle odyssey during which cyclist and campaign leader Jeremy Bally will be telling the story of West Papua through performance art. Learn more at: www.pedallingforpapua.com
PPP also presents ongoing public engagement programming which includes our One Wave Festival – celebrating the diversity of the North and South Pacific and the great ocean we all share; publication of Tok Blong Pasifik that covers the news and views of the Pacific; and educational lectures, presentations, adjunct advisory networking, etc. We are currently raising funds for a number of initiatives outlined on our giving page.
