Where are we now?

  • Self-sufficiency and independence

  • An empowered community

  • Rebuilt lives

How do we get there?

  • United Nations

  • “Requests the Secretary-General to continue to encourage the relevant agencies, funds and programmes of the United Nations system to implement resolution 59/137 expeditiously, inter alia, by providing assistance in the areas of education for orphans, medical care and treatment for victims of sexual violence, including HIV-positive victims, trauma and psychological counselling, and skills training and microcredit programmes aimed at promoting self- sufficiency and alleviating poverty.” (UN Resolution 62/96)

  • International NGOs

  • International Development Agencies

What is success?

  • Can we ever know when we have won?

  • Can we learn from failure, when we can't afford to fail? When success is life or death.

  • “It is necessary to begin where the world is if we are going to change it to what we think it should be...”
