Why we build peace
We recognise that people can only prosper when they are living in lasting peace. Currently, millions of people live in fear. Every day they face the threat of violence, being wrongly arrested or mistreated. Countless communities suffer the impact of violent conflict which leads to poverty, division and the denial of human rights. Peacebuilding can and must turn the tide on this.
Our vision, mission and values will guide us along the way.
Cord’s vision is a world where all people can live in peace and live life to the full.
Our mission is to develop positive and thriving relationships between individuals, communities and those in power.
- We are compassionate
- We value everyone, recognising they are unique and special
- We believe in the power of relationships
- We explore and address the root causes of violent conflict
Hope on the horizon
Thousands of families around the world face the threat of losing their land, and with it, their homes and means to survive. But hope is uniting these poor communities; they are rising up against injustice. And you can stand shoulder to shoulder with them.
