And the second post for June… told you!
My second job
I don’t spend all of my time ethically sourced handmade jewellery and hanging about on market stalls. I also work at a wonderful charity, International Alert, who are an independent peacebuilding organisation and committed to working with people who are directly affected by violent conflict to improve their prospects of peace.
Who are are they?
They don’t build schools, hospitals or roads but they do build something no less vital for life, but often much less understood. They build peace.
What do they want?
Their vision is of a world where differences are resolved without resort to violence; a world where people seek and can get better lives for their families and communities, and conflicts that arise are managed peacefully.
