Education / Trauma Relief / Psychosocial Support

Going through extraordinarily stressful events more often than not leads to lasting emotional and psychological trauma. Our work in conflict mitigation might help alleviate the immediate sources of the trauma, but time does not necessarily heal all wounds, and so post-trauma stress is quite common. We work with institutions that help individuals who have gone through trauma that may have been caused by rape, domestic violence, experiencing/witnessing an act of violence, among others, cope with the events that come with it. 

These institutions include and are not limited to learning institutions that work with women, youth and children.

Call for Applications: Conflict Sensitive Reporting Training.

This training program is designed to provide journalists and bloggers with the necessary skills and knowledge to report on conflict issues responsibly and ethically, while also promoting peace and dialogue within their communities.
