Welcome to the N-Peace Awards! The N-Peace Awards were first launched in 2011 to recognize and profile women and men leaders and peacebuilders creating change at the grassroots to national levels in Asia. Coordinated by the N-Peace Network across Indonesia, Pakistan, Myanmar, Nepal, Afghanistan, and the Philippines, the Awards shine a light on women and men who demonstrate leadership in building peace and empowering their communities.
