The Women’s Peace Centre works for the promotion of a democratic culture based on the protection of peace and security through increasing the power of women to bring about action.
The Women’s Peace Centre started in 1996 as a project of Search For Common Ground (SFCG) Burundi. At that time it was called the 'Peace Centre for Women.' When the project came to an end in 2006, some Burundian women who had worked within the project decided to restart it as an independent organisation.
The main activities of WPC are capacity building through training, exchanges and seminars; technical support to grassroots peacebuilding initiatives; and advocacy for women’s rights and the involvement of Burundian women in the peace and reconciliation process.
