QUNO staff work with people in the UN, multilateral organisations, government delegations, and non-governmental organisations, to achieve changes in international standards and practice. Quakers are known for speaking out against injustice and war – issues that are incompatible with our vision of a world in which peace and justice prevail.
Our work is rooted in the Quaker testimonies of peace, truth, justice, equality, and simplicity. We understand peace as more than the absence of war and violence, recognizing the need to look for what seeds of war there may be in all our social, political, and economic relationships.
What we did for them
Beatrice helped guide our application to the Oak Foundation for funding for our Climate Change programme.
We also consulted her on suggestions for improving our overall fundraising strategy and discussed the possibility contracting her for consulting project in the near future.
Beatrice provided critical advice and feedback that gave our application a better chance of success.
