Going Forward

FFP plans to achieve three significant milestones in the coming five years. They are to build a community of indigenous foundations with shared wisdom and expertise supporting each other to build peace in areas where there is ongoing or risk of communal conflict. The second is to create a significant impact on leading international and national agencies to commit in practice to a world order based on relationships of equality diversity and interdependence through a process of peacebuilding. Third to create awareness in their world to channel philanthropic funds towards indigenous peacebuilding foundations.

Things to Do
To achieve the above milestones FFP has charted out some well thought out strategies and intends to work to a plan
• To ensure that the membership of Foundations for Peace is diverse in religion, gender, and culture and reaches out to the many regions of the globe that share the challenges of peacebuilding derived from entrenched , persistent and potential communal conflict
• Training for members in order to foster respect and sensitivity for socio cultural differences
• Support for individual members in crisis thorough collective discussion and reflection with specific actions when required
• Cross cultural exchange programmes from member member organizations and their grantees
• Technical assistance to network members
• Documentation, analysis and dissemination of good practices
• To develop and resource indigenous thematic programmes on a collaborative transnational basis to have both local impact and shared learning
• To promote solidarity between members in order to enable them to effect progressive social change and address the causes of conflict within society
• Building strategic alliances with government and philanthropic organizations to respond to the issues of peacebuilding raised by the network
• Conducting research on thematic topics that are necessary for peacebuilding
• To disseminate the learning from that network to influence relevant national and international bodies
