Share your peacebuilding story: #IAmAPeacebuilder

To mark this year's International Day of Peace, on 21 September, we want to highlight and celebrate the community of people building peace around the world. We’ll be sharing a series of stories about some of the inspiring people we work with - and we want you to share your stories with us too. 
No matter where you are in the world, if you play a part in making your community, region or country a more peaceful place, then join us and make your voice heard.
You can share your picture and story with us on Twitter using the hashtag #IAmAPeacebuilder, or via our Facebook page. Let us know where you are from and the role you play in building peace or your hopes for peace.
For example...
We need powerful women that can work for peace. I am the voice of voiceless women in the Central African Republic #IAmAPeacebuilder
Peace for Colombia for me is a new path. It was our grandparents’ dream and now is our responsibility to build it #IAmAPeacebuilder
I help young people in the Democratic Republic of Congo to find a path away from violence, towards peace #IAmAPeacebuilder
