Its over 700 members include educational institutions, religious organisations and individuals in some five African countries. The Council seeks to mobilise public opinion and signature campaigns to eliminate threats to peace, not only in Africa. It forwards written responses to threats to peace to civil, religious and political authorities. It sets up information, research and communication programmes to help political authorities take the right decisions. The projects of the Council focus on the areas of social and economic justice, non-violence, refugees, social conflict, interfaith activities, and youth and women. In the area of non-violence it organises workshops on peace, social justice and reconciliation in African countries. It organizes relief materials and welfare services for refugees and displaced persons. PAYC conducts research and collects data on the causes of inter-communal conflicts. It plays a mediatory role in resolving social conflicts and provides early warning on conflicts within and amongst African communities. Special activities are carried out for youth and women. PAYC organises youth leadership training activities and co-ordinates an international campaign to eliminate child abuse (Prostituion) and discrimination against women. It assists students on issues of non-violence and peace. Illustrative Project: PAYC played crucial role in the monitoring of the Nigerian elections in 2007 which was flawed. It was the co-ordinating organization for Anglophone and Lusophone West Africa.
