Launched in 1991, Protecting Environment and Children Everywhere (PEaCE) is a non-profit
organization, which is the Sri Lankan counterpart of ECPAT- a global network to end Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children.
Prevention of sexual exploitation of children being its primary focus, PEaCE constantly strives to ensure that children from marginalized and vulnerable backgrounds in Sri Lanka are protected from all forms of abuse, neglect and exploitation. Whilst ensuring that the Rights of the children coming from these marginalized communities are safeguarded and upheld, the organization is aiming at creating a safe environment for every child regardless of their race, religion, gender or creed.
In our efforts to build a network of a Child Rights protection community comprising State and Non State actors, PEaCE nurtures collaborations among civil society activists, government officials particularly the law enforcement officers, teachers and various other stake holders. The focal activities of PEaCE include; capacity building of public sector officials through awareness and training, legal case monitoring and counselling, lobbying and advocacy to influence the National Policy, fostering rehabilitation for abused children and research and data collection.
Maintaining close relations with the grassroots level, we consider, is essential to sustain our work and PEaCE therefore, conducts various programmes for the benefit of the community we are engaged with, from holding medical camps/ monthly medical clinics for children and their families to conducting afternoon classes for vulnerable children from identified localities in order to keep them occupied in an environment free of abuse.
