Healing and Reconciliation
Where societies have been torn apart by violence, people can experience deep emotional pain. Our programs create space to discuss underlying grievances constructively, repair relationships between conflict-affected groups, and ultimately interrupt continued cycles of revenge.
Through structured dialogue, shared community projects, joint problem-solving, and trauma healing programs where appropriate, we focus on rebuilding a sense of trust and safety—and a shared vision of a more peaceful future. We then collaborate to share participants’ experiences of commonality and healing with a broader public, as a counterweight to narratives that dehumanize or target others.
