Our peace-making and gender equality activities started in 1998 with ‘The Peacemakers’, registered as a company limited by guarantee in 2000. Two people were given a Millennium Award to work on ‘Extent of Domestic Violence among Black African and Caribbean’.
This led to the formation of Bradford Women in Safe Hands (B-WISH, later called ‘Women in Safe Hands). B-WISH was also registered as a company limited by guarantee. In 2011, because of cutting in funding, the two organisations came together to form what is now called PEACEMAKER INTERNATIONAL and registered in England and Wales as PEACEMAKER INTERNATIONAL (PROJECT).
We currently operate in Bradford, Manchester and Nigeria.
