What we do

The Fund’s Programmes

Peace Impact Programme

PIP is designed to deliver positive community transformation through sensitive intervention with those who have not previously or only partially participated in peace building activities.

Peace Walls Programme

Launched in 2012, this programme focuses on helping interface communities to bring about the conditions that allow the removal of Peace Walls.

Personal Youth Development Programme

Launched in late 2015 the PYDP aims to help at risk young people build and develop life skills that foster good relations, build confidence and resilience and make them more employable.

What We Do

The International Fund for Ireland’s five-year Community Consolidation – Peace Consolidation 2016-2020 Strategy focuses on four key areas of activity:

  • Peace Impact Programme (PIP)
  • Peace Walls Programme (PWP)
  • Personal Youth Development Programme (PYDP)
  • Shared Education Programme (SEP)

The Strategic Framework’s objectives are:

  • To promote reconciliation and integration in interface areas
  • To continue to engage communities and individuals, particularly young people, who have only recently or have not yet participated in peace building and community reconciliation activities
  • To maintain the longstanding approach of the Fund in promoting economic and social advance in communities suffering from very high levels of economic and social deprivation
  • To continue to build strategic alliances with other funders and government to ensure interventions are complementary, sustainable and can shape policies that promote peace and reconciliation
  • To extend the Fund’s engagement with other peace builders on the island of Ireland and in other regions emerging from conflict as part of a wider effort to  promote conflict resolution
  • To review by early 2019 the progress made by the Fund and determine if further work is required to secure the peace.
