Global Peace Mission (GPM) is a non-governmental organization officially formed in 2001 in response to humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. But prior to the official formation, for more than two decades and under various names, GPM has provided emergency assistance to various communities in Southeast Asia, South Asia, Central Asia, Middle East, Africa and Eastern Europe. GPM has extended various assistance to communities in more than 20 countries such as Afghanistan, Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Cambodia, Chechnya, Indonesia, Iraq, Laos, Kashmir, Kosovo, Lebanon, Myanmar, Pakistan, Palestine, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Thailand, Timor Leste, and Uzbekistan.
Over the years, GPM slowly evolves to become an international relief and development organization working to alleviate human suffering among the world’s poorest and most needy communities, regardless of race, creed, gender, nationality or political inclination. Although the main focus of GPM is at the international level, it also realizes that quite a number of local communities are in need of some kind of assistance. Thus GPM also carries out a few local programs such as a community development project in Sarikei Divison, Sarawak.
Through generous donation from the public, GPM has been able to provide help to thousands of people in many communities around the world. Besides maintaining our own offices, GPM also works in partnership with local community-based organizations. The latter approach is not only cost-effective, but also instrumental in building the capacity of local people to help themselves.
GPM is a founding member of Union of NGOs of the Islamic World (UNIW) based in Istanbul, Turkey. In 2006, GPM was appointed to head the Social, Humanitarian and Solidarity Commission of UNIW. Additionally, as a recognition of its role in humanitarian work, the Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Conference admits GPM as a member of OIC Humanitarian Forum (OICHF).
