    2. Philosophy • By and for survivors • “Just is” for survivors • Hearing and healing • Holistic approach

    3. Beneficiaries • 400,000 survivors • Orphans • Widows • Second generation

    4. Survivors Fund • SURF delivers… • Education • Healthcare • Livelihoods • Memory • Shelter • ... and more

    5. International Wrongs • Immediate aftermath of the genocide • ICTR • Direct budget support • Forgiveness agenda

    6. Where are we now? • Survivors are still dispossessed and disempowered • Vulnerable, poor and in the minority • “Non-violent co-existence” not reconciliation • Supported, for the time being, by FARG

    7. Where do we want to be? • A world where the rights and dignity of survivors is respected • Self-sufficiency and independence • An empowered community • Rebuilt lives

    8. 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

    9. 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...”
