If access to clean water and education; skills and livelihoods; legal representation and basic rights, is unfair, corrupt or exclusive, then sustainable development is unachievable.
And if this is a result of deliberate choices, then violence often follows.
For 50 years, Cord has worked with vulnerable people profoundly affected by violence – people trapped in poverty because basic needs are difficult to deliver, when insecurity and violence make progress all but impossible.
Cord’s practical programmes seek to reduce and remove violence – physical or structural; through prejudice or deliberate actions that hurt, harm, suppress or intimidate – in all its forms.
“So for me and my family, we are so happy to get this land title. I think that my family will have a brighter future.”
“What I learn from them is that even though they got the land title, their lives are still not so secure...people don’t trust the law even though they have their land title.”
“If you have land and shelter, people respect you. Without it, you have no dignity.”
“Before, it was not possible to imagine sharing a drink or a meal with a Batwa. Today, things have changed."
