Current Programs We know that those most impacted by violence and exploitation are the ones with the solutions to end them. That’s why we partner with dedicated community leaders on innovative programs that empower local communities to protect each other from violence, heal from trauma, and demand justice from their leaders.

Past Programs In addition to the innovative protection work we implement today, we have a strong and respected history of programs that have rallied the world in solidarity with communities targeted by Kony’s violence and have also supported thousands of children, men, and women working to rebuild their lives in the wake of LRA violence. We’re proud of all the programs we have built and supported over the last 10 years. Help us carry that legacy forward by supporting our lifesaving programs in central Africa today.

A Solid Track Record Based on more than ten years of experience working in one of the world’s most ungoverned and challenging regions, we have developed and refined a widely respected approach that focuses on the protection of vulnerable communities from violence and exploitation, elevates local solutions, and adapt in volatile and unpredictable environments.

The Gameplan What needs to happen? A safe and thriving central Africa is possible. Communities themselves hold the keys to achieving that goal. Our role is to listen, follow their lead, and bring the expertise and ingenuity that best complements theirs.

    END THE EXTREME ISOLATION THAT ENABLES VIOLENCE

    We will build, expand, and improve local communication systems to ensure that every community in central Africa has access to lifesaving information and the ability to call for help when threatened with violence. We will train communities to collect and share security information and will organize regular forums for collaboration between local and international experts to develop the most effective solutions to violence and exploitation.

    REVERSE THE DEPLETION OF ENDANGERED REGIONAL WILDLIFE

    True liberty for all, including future generations, must include the protection of natural environments. Alongside local partners and international wildlife conservation experts, we will ensure communities understand the long-term economic and ecological importance of wildlife conservation and equip them to help end regional wildlife poaching and trafficking. By strengthening local conservation efforts, we will help reverse the depletion of the region’s endangered wildlife and cut off the funding streams that fuel violence against civilians.

    EQUIP THE MOST VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES WITH BASIC RESILIENCE

    We will work with the region’s most severely isolated and vulnerable communities to ensure that they are well equipped to recover from the impact of violence and break cycles of future violence. Together, we will identify each community’s unique strengths and local wisdom, and we will complement that with additional support that will enable them to better organize, foster unity, mediate conflict, heal from trauma, and plan for a hopeful future.
