The World Peace Volunteers (WPV) is a registered civil society organization in Ghana which aims at promoting world peace through human rights advocacy, freedom of expressions, consolidating the rule of law and entrenching democratic values, good governance through the observation of elections, conflict resolution and arbitration activities, etc. in Ghana and the world at large.

World Peace Volunteers (WPV) works for a world in which the human rights, freedoms and the dignity of all people are protected, celebrated, and realized, in which state and social, economic, legal and political systems respect both the individual and the community, in which men and women have equal opportunity and rights, and in which all generations, cultures and people are respected and valued as vital.

With our largely voluntary active citizenship we aim to contribute to awareness changes grounded on an inclusive, humanist perspective that upholds values of appreciation of the other and self-esteem of the individual. In our view, transformed mindsets can then inform constructive intergroup relationship building and dialogue facilitation – a necessary condition for reconciliation and healing in peace building and the basis for mutual acceptance between various communities and social groups. In our project work, we strongly focus on community-based needs and subsequently development of local capabilities and dialogue structures.

We dedicated to a world in which effective infrastructure and capacities for democratic participation and civic engagement, peacebuilding, violence prevention and healing after level violence are strengthened at every level and in which ownership for peace, democracy and human rights lies with in each of our communities, while being a common global commitment.

We contribute to a sustainable way to the establishment of a lasting peace in the world by building the capacity of volunteers to help communities prevent, resolve, and transform conflicts through efficient gathering, processing and use of conflict data for peace building.

World Peace Volunteers (WPV) believes in a systems approach to peace-building that recognizes the complexity of modern conflict, and which connects the multiple sectors working for peace-making string linkages between the local, regional, national and global levels to create a stringer scaffolding for peace.

We use the full spectrum of our operational capabilities from research, to training, direct engagement, peace operations, awareness raising, mobilization, and building of multistakeholder partnerships and alliances to prevent violence, build collaborative spaces and initiatives to address conflicts constructively, and strengthen the development of effective, sustainable and standing infrastructure and capabilities for peace with each community and country and at the regional and global levels.

World Peace Volunteers (WPV) mobilizes and engage citizens, governments and national and international organizations to work actively individually and together to overcome all forms of direct, structural and cultural violence, and to join together to build direct, structural and cultural peace.

We cultivate innovative by accelerating and integrating new concepts and approaches to peace and security, and by breaking down sectorial silos.

Building lasting and sustainable peace by reinforcing the capacities of societies to overcome deep divisions and address conflict in non-violent ways.


To build a world free from all forms of violence.


As a global peace-building organization, World Peace Volunteers (WPV) share a common values and principles that guide our work. These values are based on a holistic understanding of peace, so not only the absence of war or direct violence, but also the pretense of positive conditions that support physical, psychological, social, cultural, economic and environmental well-being. We are committed to build a sustainable peace that is owned and led by local communities, extents across different fields, and focuses on violence prevention.


Under the umbrella of inclusivity, diversity, respect and equality are central to World Peace Volunteers (WPV). We are peace builders representing a wide variety of social, religious, gender and ethnic identity, abilities, cultures, and approaches. In order to make the most of the riches of our diversity, we ensure that our activities and engagements are inclusive of people from different backgrounds and walks of life, and don’t leave behind those who face particular forms of exclusions. This approach is also important in our membership approach seeking to represent voices the “usual suspects”. We aim to promote gender-responsive and transformative approaches in peace-building.


Our dignity is about the fair and equal treatment of all actors in peace processes. It is only through considering the interests, views and needs of all persons that a process, and in turn the peace itself, can be legitimate.


World Peace Volunteers (WPV)  reflects the power of solidarity. We share our success and challenges. We are a supportive community of grassroots and globally aware people. Our interconnectedness increases our threats and violence around us, inspiring us to take collaborative action as a movement. This is particularly important to support the creation of safe spaces for enjoyments of our embers.


Our humanity is about ensuring that all those involved in peacemaking strive to be empathetic and respectful of others. For international actors this means enabling, rather than leading, peace processes. They must see themselves as midwives, not architects.


Our creativity, innovative and non-formal approaches are unique to World Peace Volunteers (WPV)  and people alike. We seek continuous learning, adapting to our changing world, staying relevant, agile and impactful. In this strategy, we support sustainable innovation and non-formal approaches that we are people-centered and rights-based and advocate for our partners and people to recognize the same.


Opposing all forms of violence, including physical, verbal, social, cultural, environmental and structural violence, is central to our Vision we want. We are dedicated to do no harm and to work nonviolently at all times.


Genuine approaches to people participation, leadership and empowerment are fundamental to World Peace Volunteers (WPV), beyond tokenism and with real impact. This is true in the way we define our work, aim to work with gender, but also involves giving our members a direct role in assessing the accountability, transparency and agency of people involved in building peace.


Our cardinal goal is to build sustainable peace, thereby creating an enabling environment for development in the world.
