About Inter Pares:
Founded in 1975, Inter Pares works with its international counterparts to help communities confront injustice, implement locally-adapted solutions, develop innovative initiatives and advocate to their governments. It believes in developing two-way collaboration with its partners instead of the traditional one-way 'helping' relationship. Inter Pares works with 120 organizations in 37 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and Canada. It primarily works in South East Asia (with 71 collaborators), Canada (with 20 collaborators), and Central America (with 14 collaborators). Inter Pares focuses on issues surrounding women's equality, peace and democracy, control over resources, economic justice, food sovereignty, health and migration. It also advocates for improved and fairer policies, supports women's leadership, and facilitates learning exchanges by bringing together activists who are struggling with the same issues.
In Tanzania, Africa, Inter Pares worked with local women’s organizations to advocate local governments and police against sexual violence against women. It reports that police saw a 50% increase in reported sexual violence cases.
In Colombia, Latin America, Inter Pares’ Project Counselling Service helped to develop policies to support the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of combatants after its 60-year internal conflict. It reports that it organized 15 workshops for over 400 people.
Inter Pares is a medium-sized charity, with donations of $2.4m in F2015. Its administrative costs are 4% of revenues, and its fundraising costs are 12% of donations.
