WHY DONATE TO INITIATIVES OF CHANGE?
80% of humanitarian crisis are conflict-related. Conflict often starts because of polarization and misunderstanding. We build sustainable peace through laying the foundation: trust.
We believe that change starts from within. We focus first on people’s personal responsibility and nurture the inherent dignity that unites us as humans. This breaks the cycle of denial, blame, and victimhood that feeds polarization. Individuals become trustbuilders first by being willing to take an honest look at their own attitudes and behavior, reconciling where necessary, and then modeling the change they wish to see happen in the world.
Thanks to supporters just like you we have been able to deliver eight decades of trustbuilding and reconciliation work to communities around the world, which is critical to laying the foundation for a future of lasting peace for everyone.
