How we work

Read about our strategy, theory of change and how we measure our impact. Find out why working in partnership is so important to us and who we’re working with.

Our strategy

There are 3 strands to our peacebuilding work. Together they strengthen relationships between different parts of society. Communities become safer and more stable, and people prosper.
