So often, war and violence dominate our headlines. We see lives destroyed, communities torn apart, the gutted buildings of bombed out towns shadowing over rubble graves. But there is a different story.

A story crafted by remarkable people living in war zones who believe that something can be done to stop the violence. They are joined by a growing family of passionate, determined people from all over the world who believe this too: donors, supporters, activists, students and many others.

We work with these people to help local communities build peace in over ten war torn countries.

The difference your support makes

Local voices from DR Congo

“My name is Jeanne, and I’m 30 years old. I live in a village in DR Congo and have three boys and a little girl. I am one of the ten members of the Peace Court (Baraza) in our village.

It is thanks to the training I received from FOCHI on leadership, peaceful resolution of conflicts and running the Peace Court that I managed to put an end to a dispute between a mother from our village and a police officer.

I had to use all the techniques that I learned during the conflict management training to help them reach a peaceful conclusion.

Afterwards, the people of the village all asked me: “How did you convince them to resolve their differences?” I replied that it was
thanks to my training.

We are up to these tasks, however complex they may be. The conflict between the mother and the policeman has definitely ended. I do not know how to thank FOCHI for the self-confidence it has placed in me to promote peace and development in our village. I take my hat off to them!”

–Jeanne, 30, DR Congo
