In December 2002, 130 delegates from 47 nations chose Sri Lanka as the site of the first Nonviolent Peaceforce pilot project. The Nonviolent Peaceforce is recruiting, training, and sending 50 international civilians to help establish a foundation for sustainable peace in Sri Lanka between 2003 and 2005
The first group of teams is moving to the communities where they will live and work for two years on 11 November 2003.
Teams will be located in Mutur, Valaichchenai, Jaffna and Matara.
