Our Mission is to bring about better conditions in communities in need through collaboration and partnership, offering knowledge and skills of value in resolving and healing from the devastating impact of violence, conflict, and natural disasters, with the core principle of honoring the innate wisdom of human beings and their ability to explore their own challenges and experiences within the context of their own culture and world view, so as to regain resilience, power of choice, and control over their own lives.


Our Vision, as an outcome of our work, is flexible, adaptable, coherent, energized, and stable individuals participating in functional, productive communities that are navigating and meeting their challenges in a world that works for us all.
