The main triggers of violence in fragile societies are morality, justice, rights, identity, unmet needs and the unequal distribution of resources. As a result affected communities and individuals are faced with a horrible decision when coming up against authorities, it comes down to either choosing silence or choosing violence.

But there is another way.

Each of our programmes work because we identify the root cause of the current violence. We are then best placed to address a specific community need and design a sustainable approach to peacebuilding effectively.
