House of Peace (HOPe), officially registered as Threads of Peace in 2019, is a non-governmental social peace-building organization based in Lebanon.

PROJECT EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The Conflict Sensitivity Unit has been advancing the Conflict Sensitivity approach among local NGOs, INGOs, Activist, Social Initiatives, and Volunteers for the past 5 years, by mainstreaming CS through training, follow-ups, and leading the Lebanon Conflict Sensitivity Forum.
The CS mainstreaming project with UNDP aims specifically to defining and disseminating guidelines, building the capacity of partners as well as enhancing the strategic conversations around conflict mainstreaming within the LCRP.
Because we believe that in all times, especially in times of turmoil and change, a source of peace exists in every person and every society, and all we need to do is facilitating the process for peace to emerge and blossom.
Our vision as HOPers is bringing together uniquely different individuals with shared values, and transforming the notion of peace into a practice of being and living, to inspire social change towards a hopeful and purposeful life.
In an inclusive and participatory way, we enhance social peace:
through shifting perceptions about reality, peace, self, and the other;
through supporting and connecting community-based initiatives and dialogue spaces;
through advancing the principles of conflict sensitivity;
and through voicing grassroots perspectives, stories, and aspirations.
