We believe that violence stops when people start talking. We know how to challenge harmful beliefs and promote peace and reconciliation: by listening and offering another point of view. By telling an alternative story that connects people. You or your organisation can help us to convert harmful beliefs about religion, gender and ethnicity into powerful connections that will outlast hate.
We believe that positive, lasting change starts bottom-up. Our local partners truly are people with a mission: community leaders, religious leaders, local organisations and young people with passion and boundless commitment. Your -financial- contribution is directly put to use within communities and by the people in Africa, Asia and Latin America who suffer daily from hatred and violence.
Our programmes include a special focus on equality between men and women, the emancipation of women and girls, and the involvement of young people as change makers in peace-building processes. We therefore focus on strengthening the position of women and youth in decision-making processes. We also address the core of the problem: harmful religious views that have a negative impact on the position and treatment of women and girls and marginalised ethnic and religious communities.
