Fly Kites Not Drones, inspired by the successful international initiative run by Afghan Peace Volunteers, is a joint effort from Voices for Creative Non-Violence UK, the Drone Campaign Network, Pax Christi UK and Quaker Peace & Social Witness.

The Afghan Peace Volunteers (APV)  follow the path of non-violence. Established 7 years ago, the group mainly consists of teenagers and young adults who think globally and act locally. Speak to the team online on Global Days of Listening!

VCNV are a peace group who formed in 2012 to work in solidarity with non-violent Afghan peace makers. Our work is inspired and in collaboration with the Afghan Peace Volunteers in Kabul.

As Quakers we are impelled by our faith to make our lives an active witness for peace and justice. Our testimony to equality, justice, peace, simplicity, sustainability and truth challenges us to alleviate suffering and create positive social change. We do "peace education" to support this witness.

Pax Christi is the international Catholic movement working for peace, nonviolence, and reconciliation. Our vision is of a world where people can live in peace, without fear of violence of any form. more
