Peace Brigades International (PBI) is a non-governmental organisation founded in 1981 which protects human rights and promotes non-violent transformation of conflicts. It primarily provides protection, support and recognition to organisations, defenders and communities advocating for human rights and at threat for their work. With the objective of achieving long-term financial sustainability, PBI has embarked on a comprehensive organisational development process that includes a strengthening of its fund-raising, communication and monitoring and evaluation systems. PN is also supporting the transition of PBI’s international office, as it is being moved to Brussels with a broader mandate and increased capacity.

The key to Peace Nexus support for PBI lies in the rich combination of financial support with constant, open and honest dialogue and support for our change process. PBI is very grateful to have an ally such as Peace Nexus on our journey to becoming a stronger, more resilient and sustainable organization so that we can better carry out our work of protecting at-risk human rights defenders throughout the world.
