Over 50 years Cord has worked with people profoundly affected by violence resulting from poor political and economic leadership. This has given Cord a unique insight into the negative cycles of conflict and identi­fied freedom as crucial to building peaceful societies.

Freedom speaks to choice, to dignity, to autonomy. It includes the excluded, creates opportunity and promotes human rights. Freedom is the standard bearer of peaceful societies; communities living in cooperation, families living without fear, children growing with a hope filled future.

When societies experience freedom, they protect the peace it brings. They build on its foundation, they respect and protect their rights and, crucially, educate their children to expect the same freedoms – perpetuating peaceful societies for future generations.
