Women Peace Makers

Women Peace Makers works to support the empowerment of women and youth, transform conflict,
and prevent violence, including gender based violence, by providing the tools and space for dialogue
and deeper understanding about issues of gender and peace.


Who We Are

Women Peace Makers began as a youth and women led-peacebuilding network in 2000 and became an independent registered non-governmental organization in 2003. As a longstanding NGO working responsibly in Cambodia, WPM has developed its guiding principles over time through hard work and significant learning.


What We Do


Today’s WPM is the culmination of over a decade and a half of action and learning in the field with a focus on three intersectional gender and peacebuilding thematic areas: gender and women issues, peace and conflict transformation, and youth empowerment.
