  • Vision *: Pax Potest; Mutatio Potest. Peace is Possible; Change is Possible. It takes people to make war; it also takes people to make peace. Development is of people, by people, and for people; it’s all about people, not things. With the right conditions, spaces, and processes, the passions of war turn into desires for peace; and the stumbling blocks to human progress turn into stepping stones of transformative, genuine, sustainable, and inclusive development. We work to build flourishing and peaceful communities that cherish and harness diversity, act justly and inclusively, and promote the goodness and dignity of all.
