We work with communities to address underlying tensions, resolve conflicts, and increase resilience to future violence with collaborative approaches to peacebuilding and reconciliation. Employing creative methods of building peace between war-torn communities, we tailor our approaches to local contexts and use technology to enhance and amplify outcomes. Our programs address feelings of marginalization and exclusion that can contribute to further violence or disrupt reconciliation processes. In Ukraine, Chemonics’ collaboration with local organizations helps integrate internally displaced persons and other vulnerable groups into communities, both economically and socially. Our projects in Iraq, Yemen, Mali, and Georgia also strive to promote social cohesion, promote community dialogue, and engage marginalized communities to help solve local problems.
