To build a peace culture so as to oppose violence that generates ignorance, prejudice, fanaticism and inequalities, all which are socio-economic-political factors that are potential roots of HIV/AIDS.

Peace is not only the absence of war, but rather the absence of all types of violence. Our interpretation of peace is manifold as it includes the elimination of domestic violence as well as removal of discrimination from the workplace, in schools, in communities and globally. It is also our mission to develop Leadership, Women’s Empowerment, Peace and AIDS programs. These can be related to each other or function as independent programs to support gender equality and family empowerment using peace as a factor to eliminate the stigma and discrimination that comes with HIV/AIDS and by also including the institutional and business sector as part of the solution.
