We all face conflicts of different kinds throughout our lives, and by doing our part individually, we can collectively advance our world towards peace; one community, one person, and one day at a time. The Whitaker Peace and Development Initiative (WPDI) is a non-governmental organization with an international scope and reach, founded by Forest Whitaker in 2012. WPDI develops an array of peace-building programs, initiatives and campaigns to foster peace and reconciliation in disadvantaged and fragile communities in the different regions of the world, including Africa, Latin America and the United States. Working in close cooperation with international organizations, civil society, grassroots organizations, and a network of experts, we promote youth empowerment, cultural diversity, continuous learning, capacity building, and access to internet connectivity and digital technologies thereby transforming areas impacted by destructive conflicts into safer and more prosperous communities.
