An Investment in Real Peace

Military forces in Canada, the United States and the United Nations spend US$150,000 or Cdn$220,000 per soldier per year to maintain a war-fighting or "peace-keeping" capability. In 2012, the cost to maintain one US soldier in Afghanistan was betwen $815,000 and $1.4 million a year (One soldier, one year: $850,000 and rising, CNN blog, February 28th, 2012)

It costs money to keep Christian peacemakers in the field too: money for travel, subsistence stipends, and communications equipment. But the cost of one of our peacemakers is only one-tenth that of a soldier. And our teams are many more times effective in reducing violence and contributing to real peace and lasting security.
