ABOUT US

Global Peace Let's Talk (GPLT) is an international multiracial membership Non-Profit Organisation working in +40 countries spread across 5 continents of the world, its work brings together people of different political affiliations, colours, religions, and cultures. Founded by Dr. HC. Veronica (Nikki) de Pina, the current Chief Executive, who decided to take action when she saw the challenges being faced by people across the world, especially women and girls living in conflict zones. 

It all started with a storytelling meeting, discussing with a group of peacemakers and agreeing to start a movement of peacemakers.

GPLT's mission is on a peacebuilding mission with the main focus on conflict prevention through storytelling using art as a therapy for healing.

Let's agree that most of all misunderstandings around the world are fueled or are caused by anger and end up becoming conflicts, these challenges being faced by people around the world have pushed GPLT to create and become involved in more humanitarian actions as a means of maximizing its sustainable peace-building actions. Monitoring, mitigating, and responding remain parts of its balanced and comprehensive strategy.

WHERE WE WORK

 

GPLT has National Chapters and Associated Members active in +40 countries across five continents. Each of GPLT's National Chapters works on peace-building along with its several SDG aligned activities that are the most relevant to their respective national contexts.

GPLT National Sections are grassroots organisations that identify and develop programs in direct response to the needs and priorities of people in their countries. The international board has come up with, a Strategic Framework that was approved to guide GPLT’s work for the years to come. You can find our Thematic Priorities on the page below.

Covid 19

Violence against women.png

COVID-19

 With the world record on COVID-19 dearth statistics reaching a record + 5 million. Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

GPLT will continue to work with other international humanitarian organisations and partners to carry out  COVID-19 awareness activities, and working in violence-prone countries has never been easy. We have reached 1,5 million people with awareness information.

HIV & AIDS 

According to UNAIDS 45.1 million People globally were living with HIV in 2020. 2.0 million People became newly infected with HIV in 2020. An estimated 1.0 million people died from AIDS-related illnesses in 2020.

GPLT has seen that GBV increases HIV risk indirectly. Victims of childhood sexual abuse are more likely to be HIV positive and to have high-risk behaviours. GBV perpetrators are at risk of HIV infection, Support our work. We are working with      1 250 support groups

Children In Violent Nations

Globally, 25.3 per cent have witnessed violence in their homes, schools, and communities during the past year; and more than one-third (37.8 per cent) have witnessed violence against another person during their lifetimes.

GPLT has evidence that violence can harm a child's emotional, psychological and even physical development. Children exposed to violence are more likely to have difficulty in school, abuse drugs or alcohol, and we would like to reach out to 5 million children by the year 2025

Violence Against Women

Globally, an estimated 736 million women—almost one in three—have been subjected to intimate partner violence, non-partner sexual violence, or both. GPLT's work takes it to remote areas where women are subjected to violence each day, some deprived of basic needs,  girls exposed to violence and women who experience abuse and are less likely to get out of the abusive relationship. We want  to reach out to 600 000 women clubs  by year 2025

Youths Violence & Drug Abuse

Globally, one in every 10 girls aged 13-15 years and one in every 5 boys aged 13-15 years use tobacco. [WHO, 2014, http://bit.ly/1SLtkEI]​

GPLT works with victims of violence. Young people, boys and girls who abuse substances & often experience an array of problems, including academic difficulties, health-related problems (including mental health). We would like to reach out to 2,5 million young people by 2025

INTERNATIONAL STRUCTURES

Universal Children's day.JPG

The GPLT Movement's governance is composed of three strategic bodies :​

1- The International Executive Council

2- The International General Council and 

3- The Secretariat.

These are the key GPLT governance groups that form the International General Assembly once every four years. 

The International Executive Council (IEC) is the establishment of a GPLT board policy derived from its constitution. The council supports the monitoring and evaluation of the organisation's progress towards its strategic goals and initiatives. It provides oversight for the entire organization. The IEC is responsible for overseeing the approval of board policies and ensuring good governance practices. It works with the board to establish and sunset committees and task forces that oversee/monitor and evaluate the GPLT's international activities. The IEC sits regularly as a Council for planning

GPLT International Secretariat is at the heart of the movement. It acts as an international coordinator and focal point for the +40 National Chapters, which are spread across five continents. It is composed of 20 staff members.

The international Secretariat engages strategically with relevant human rights mechanisms in the UN, including the UNCRC, the Human Rights Council, and other human rights bodies.

The International General Council 

 is GPLT' governing authority, It is composed of 12 board members elected every four years by their peers during the General Assembly and 5 staff members from each national chapter. The General Assembly is organised every four years to validate the Movement’s Strategic Framework. Each National Chapter is represented.

The 12 board members meet up to four times per year to validate the strategic orientation of the Movement.

During these meetups, an Advisory Committee of renowned human rights and governance experts provides substantive and technical support to the GPLT Movement.
