Tech 4 Peace

Our Vision:

Achieve peace and stability by being an end to the circulation of lies in mainstream and social media across the Middle East, primarily in Iraq.


Our Mission:

Building awareness through collaboration efforts in campaigns and training seminars with the aim to making everyone Tech4Peace while creating opportunities and putting ourselves out of a job.


Our Slogan:
Our slogan is “It ends with us…” – referring to lies, violence, sectarianism, civil war, instability, corruption, hate, blackmailing, personal attacks, etc… as all these issues are sparked by rumors and the spread of lies – and our key objective is exposing lies.


Our Core Values:

Nonpartisan, Peace, Awareness, Truth, Tolerance


Our Values:

Transparency, Technology, Trust, Security, Creating Opportunities


Our Operation – Online & Offline:


Online, we work through Facebook, Telegram, Twitter, Instagram & Youtube – our largest user following is on Facebook with over 370,000 followers (almost entirely organic). We operate with the help of 21 volunteers between Iraq, Canada, USA & Italy (all have official training certificates from Tech 4 Peace). They are separated into 5 groups (Admins, Investigations, Translation, Comments, Design) – the workflow is distributed through the groups and executed accordingly.

On the front end of things, we expose fake news & verify news that lacks proper sources or is unclear. Behind the scenes, we find profiles, pages & groups which spread sectarianism or violence and we report them and have the social media platform shut them down.


Our work focuses on establishing grounds for reconciliation between different sects and divisions in Iraq while achieving unity and tolerance. We also do our best in diffusing political tensions between Iraq and other Countries, for example, we try to expose any fake news that is spread about the coalition collaborating with ISIS – our followers hold us to high esteem and trust us.


Offline, we have started offering training seminars and plan to focus much more on this. Our training seminars are cover three separate objectives.
