Mission

TrustWorks harnesses the power of private and public-sector actors for social good to prevent conflict, promote stability and foster peace-positive development in fragile and conflict-affected settings.

We believe that trust and courage are essential for generating and sustaining meaningful change; they enable creativity because a more sustainable, equitable and peaceful future requires different, sometimes innovative means.

Strategize

We support private and public actors to develop and implement context-specific, conflict-sensitive strategies to achieve their organizational objectives in FCS in a manner that at a minimum does ‘no harm’ and, where possible, maximises their unique potential to have positive impacts on conflict and stability.

Collaborate

We drive powerful, novel and unusual cross-boundary collaboration - breaking down siloes between private and public actors - to address critical conflict- and stability-related challenges in FCS that cannot be solved by any one actor or sector alone.

Innovate

We push the boundaries of current knowledge and practice of private and public actors in FCS – challenging conventional ways of doing things – to achieve more effective, efficient and impactful outcomes on conflict and stability.
