Just one job means a mother can send her daughter to school and won’t sell her into an early marriage. One job means a young man can join the workforce instead of a gang. One job can sustain a family of eight in Afghanistan, Rwanda or El Salvador. Bpeace works to create these jobs, but needs your enthusiasm to sustain our work. Will you help us create peace, one job at a time?
It takes Bpeace $1,000 to create one job. These funds provide the coaching and consulting that enables our Fast Runners to create one job within their community. The model has proven successful: 93% of Bpeace supported businesses are self-sustaining, and 100% of them are generating income.
This year, Bpeace is raising money through our unique “One Million Jobs Campaign.” OMJ is anchored in our core mission–creating jobs. Fundraisers commit to raising $1,000 and creating one job. Everyone who meets the $1,000 goal by May 1 celebrates with us for a night of music, mingling, great food and cocktails! (See the slide show above from last year’s celebration.)
The funds raised contribute to Bpeace’s operating budget for the coming year. The success of this campaign is vital to continue the work we care so much about.
The Benefits of joining the OMJ campaign are clear:
For Bpeace –> This funds our work.
For Fast Runner Entrepreneurs –> Helps provide the services they need to grow and create meaningful employment.

For Your Friends –> They join the broader Bpeace family and participate in job creation.
For Everyone –> CREATING jobs means LESS VIOLENCE, helping local entrepreneurs shape their community and a new tomorrow.
Joining the campaign is fun, easy and immediately brings you into the Bpeace network — collaborating with other members and fundraisers for tips, support, and tools to reach our collective goal. The more you raise, the more recognition you get, the more jobs you create, AND you have a chance to win prizes.
