By pledging to make violent conflict a thing of the past, you are doing something amazing and standing for a more peaceful world. 

Everyone who signs our peace pledge is doing their bit to help people affected by conflict build brighter, safer futures for themselves.

People like Kavugho.

Kavugho is 58. She was forced to flee her home in DR Congo after violent conflict broke out in her village between the army and the Rwandan government.

When she arrived in the village of Mavivi with her husband and 7 children, life was incredibly difficult. They left everyone and everything behind. Kuvugho struggled to get support from her new community, until she met our local peacebuilding partner, Centre Résolution Conflits (CRC).

She was able to take a loan of $250 from CRC to set up her own agriculture business, and now she is helping herself and her community by selling local produce and offering employment to young people.

Your peace pledge is helping to build a community of peacebuilders like Kuvugho around the world!
