WHY PEACE Awards?
PEF recognized people of faith, community members and religious organizations who have extraordinarily served in the front lines of peace efforts, assisting communities affected by violence, discrimination and threats of persecution because of their faith. PEF acknowledged the hard work of these often marginalized and hidden religious peacemakers who used the strength of their faith to reconcile sectarianism, interfaith and communal conflicts. We honored these peace champions for their contributions to peace-building and conflict resolution locally and nationally.
What our Awardees say !
The threat of terrorism can only be overcome when our religious leaders and our madrasahs actively promote interfaith harmony and quality education. PEF is playing a pivotal role in restoring peace in Pakistan and countering extremism.
