COMMUNITIES MAKING COMMUNITIES SAFER
We work with communities in the border region of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Central African Republic, and South Sudan to end cycles of violence and reunite former child soldiers with their families.
HOW WE WORK
Our community partners guide us and our values drive us.
Our liberty is bound together. No person, community, or ecosystem exists in isolation, which means we need each other, and we need to learn from each other. It also means the safety and wellbeing of people are inextricably linked to the safety and wellbeing of our natural world.
We are constantly evaluating, listening, correcting, and innovating. We do not fail when we change course. Growth is an indicator of health and aliveness. We fail when we are unwilling to change.
We hold ourselves to a high standard. We are committed to being fair, objective, and proactively transparent in our decisions and behaviors. We honor our commitments and doing the right thing, even when no one is looking.
The most effective solutions to violence and exploitation will be crafted by a diverse and collaborative community, with those most affected by injustice at the head of the table.
To build the world we need, we must choose to see a better way beyond the current reality, believe that a better way is possible, and commit to creating it.
Everyone deserves the safety and opportunity to reach their full potential. In service to our mission, we call out and address structural violence and oppression within and outside of our organization.
We do not see challenges and setbacks as barriers to success, but as invitations to think creatively and push forward with courage and resolution.
