About us

Alliance for Peace is a non-profit and nongovernmental organisation that holds an approved deductible gift recipient charity status (DGR). It was created in 2010 and is based in Newcastle, NSW. It empowers war-torn communities by helping to reduce poverty and social marginalisation. Alliance for Peace strives to protect and advocate for refugees and prevent or solve conflicts that may arise in their resettlement to new countries. It works in partnership with existing organizations locally and internationally. Alliance for Peace has a primary goal to help grass roots communities (children and families) overcome poverty and social injustice. Supporting our cause helps to reduce global inequality and bring greater freedom and justice to the people who need it most.
