PeacePlayers International (PPI) works in many different communities in each of its program sites. These communities are selected based on a number of different characteristics: geography, demographics, urban-rural setting, and even proximity to other participating PPI communities.
However, where PPI aims to facilitate the greatest impact is in underprivileged and deeply conservative areas – those most resistant to change. In this way, PPI envisions its young people radiating change, influencing first their friends and family, then their neighbors and schools, and finally, the institutions that can formally embed progress at the regional and national levels.
Check out maps of our program sites and some of our Community Spotlight posts to get a better idea of how PPI creates change agents from some of the most disadvantaged communities in Cyprus, Israel and the West Bank, Northern Ireland and South Africa.
