About PEACEFUND CANADA FOUNDATION/ FONDATION FONDS CANADIEN POUR LA PAIX
PBI-C is an international non-governmental organization (NGO) that uses nonviolent action to deter political violence and expand the physical and political space so that human rights defenders can continue their work in areas of conflict. On request, we send international volunteers to provide protective accompaniment and an international presence to local defenders and displaced communities who fear for their safety.
Inspired by Gandhi’s practice of nonviolence, our methods work because those who wish to harm human rights defenders usually don’t want the world to know about their crimes. Our presence alone sends a powerful message: the world is watching.
