NAME OF ORGANIZATION – Peace Empowerment Foundation.
MOTTO – MAKING FOR OTHERS FIRST
Conflicts in Nigeria bear the hallmarks of emerging threats to international peace and security. Their root causes are however multifaceted and we must therefore recognize the need for a comprehensive approach to resolving them.
Above all, our response must be situated within the rubric of the quest for collective security responsibility which rest on everyone. Many communities are divided by economic class, race, colour, caste, gender and religion. Violence, intimidation, abuse and exploitation thrive in the shadows of division and inequality.
Domestic violence is a hidden tragedy in societies everywhere. To build peace in our communities, we must break the culture of silence about violence in the home and society. We must teach and advocate for tolerance, non-violence and mutual respect. It is in response to these challenges that Peace Empowerment Foundation was established.
Peace Empowerment Foundation is a non-governmental, non-religious, not-political and a non-for-profit making organization.

Our team of experts has more than Ten years experience in services with professional staff in different field working in our offices and projects in Nigeria.
Our coming under this umbrella has legally been registered in 2017 with the Companies and allied Matters Act No. l of 1999 Cooperate Affairs Commission of Nigeria. The reason for this movement is to assist many communities that are divided by economic class, race, colour, caste, gender and religion. Violence, intimidation, abuse and exploitation that thrive in the shadows of division and inequality. Domestic violence is a hidden tragedy in societies everywhere. To build peace in our communities, we must break the culture of silence about violence in the home and society.
We must teach and advocate for tolerance, non-violence and mutual respect and hence was the need for an effective structure to help the community, youths, female, male and the challenged to show the world that many talents which are untapped die out in various communities which could have help solved most of our current world problems if peace don’t exist.
