The award of £1,070,048 has supported us to continue supporting our local peacebuilding partners operating in the Beni territory of eastern DR Congo; an area that receives little international attention or support, yet where local peacebuilding work is innovative, courageous and impactful.
This support is transformational for communities in preventing and responding to rising tensions before they erupt, and for helping those affected by violence to better spot the early warning signs that can lead to violence, division and conflict.
We are proud to share the achievements made for peace with support from the Jo Cox Memorial Grant :
Thanks to the support from UK Aid from the British people, we have supported local communities to respond to the early signs of violence, and prevent atrocities.
With thanks to the Jo Cox Memorial Fund, the important work our partners are doing on the ground will reach local decision makers and their communities.
