We believe that reconciliation and integrated programming is the key to providing durable peace, stability, and successful development in the Great Lakes Region of Africa
Our focus is on serving areas that have not received due attention. In several large-scale crises, Great Lakes Peace Foundation has been the first U.S. based NGO to provide high-impact development and emergency programming to communities in need. We believe that as a humanitarian agency, a main function is to communicate the pronounced needs of the vulnerable and affected populations to the international community. We also consult closely with local communities in order to ensure that its programs do not impose solutions from the outside, but rather address the needs and requirements for the long term. This grassroots approach proves effective in fostering an environment of self-help and sustainability.
