Our Commitments

  • Historically or traditionally, it is understood that political and military issues are concepts of conflict, but we realize that economic and social threats including poverty and environmental degradation are significant contributing factors for conflict. So we are committed to building blocks for peace and security for all communities and social security, anchored in sustainable development. This would allow us to address all the big issues – poverty, climate and environmental stability.
  • We are committed to improve the livelihood of the community, make a sustainable living that can make them cope with stress, shocks and enhance their capabilities and assets both now and in future, while not undermining the natural resources base.
  • Improving water accessibility to communities living around rivers, lakes where clean water is a need also assist in the rehabilitation of dyeing natural water sources. This may include the construction of underground tanks and dams, to capture rain water and make it available to them to be used during dry seasons.
