Sustainable Peace Starts with You
Over almost two decades, the Institute for Sustainable Peace has helped transform conflict and enable reconciliation across racial, ethnic, tribal, and religious lines in the Balkans, Darfur, and cities in America. We work to unite faith-based and secular groups working to solve the same problems from very different starting points, and help companies and NGO’s to resolve significant conflicts within communities, teams and families. Partner with us to spark change in your sphere of influence so together we can change the world.
We strengthen our communities and nation by bringing people of diverse viewpoints together and providing them tools to truly understand each other. Our focus is on creating bridges of understanding that help people overcome fear of one another and work together in common purpose.
We began working in 2007 with activists and leaders from Sudan and South Sudan in transformational leadership training and peacebuilding. More recently our focus has been partnering with organizations of South Sudanese to design and facilitate healing and reconciliation workshops among members of the Diaspora.
A Peacebuilding Breakthrough in Darfur
In 2011, Makki Ibrahim Makki, ISP’s Sudan Project Manager, undertook a peacmaking project in his hometown of El Malam in Darfur. The result was reconciliation of the Fur and Bin Mansur tribes and a joint project to rebuild El Malam and nearby villages that continues to this day.
