We’re CHIPS – Christian peacemakers living in the heart of conflict for over 50 years.
From Brixton to Ghana, we're invited to join communities to help build a sustainable future that’s free from violence and division. Inspired by the life of Jesus Christ, we believe that the best way to bring about lasting peace is to take sides. Both sides.
We have four deeply held beliefs that underpin all we have done for over 50 years:
We only go where we are invited
We believe that CHIPS should only go where people want us. Peace cannot be imposed upon communities in conflict.
We live in the heart of the conflict
We believe that we must live amongst communities in the heart of the conflict in order to understand their challenges.
We take sides. Both sides
We believe in taking sides. Both sides. We seek to understand everyone’s perspective, and to build relationships.
We’re here to stay
We believe that a long-term commitment to sustainable development projects is the only way to achieve lasting results
We have an incredible team of staff and volunteers who make CHIPS’ peacemaking work possible. Our small office team are based in Brixton, South London, where they work hard to enable the peacemaking done by our project teams in Brixton and Ghana.
