Our Philosophy and Guiding Principles


1. Partnering for impact: We embrace diversity in supporting systematic change to foster sustainable solutions for overcoming poverty and violence.


2. Community-led change: We invest in and strengthen local community systems and structures through participatory methods for ownership and home-grown solutions.


3. Integrated programming: We promote holistic approaches by linking peace and development to skills and enterprise, policy and governance as well as climate change and environmental sustainability for improved livelihoods.

Our Guiding Principles


Partnering for impact

We bring people together across divides to find sustainable solutions to overcome violence and poverty. We work with a wide range of partners at all levels of society, including the national and county government, the police, civil society organizations, grassroots communities, religious and business leaders and the council of elders. 


Supporting community-led change

We support and empower local communities to drive bottom-up social change and implement their own solutions, because communities are the best agents of their own change. We invest in and strengthen community systems and structures to drive and sustain home-grown solutions.
