CECORE was founded more than 20 years ago by a number of Ugandans aspiring to promote alternative and creative means of preventing, managing, and resolving conflict.
CECORE’s purpose is to empower individual women and men, communities, organizations and institutions to transform conflict effectively by applying alternative and creative means in order to promote a culture of active tolerance and peace.
We commit to work with people, especially – but not only – in areas where conflict is present or peace is threatened, to awaken and develop their awareness that peace is within their grasp; to empower them with the knowledge and skills relevant to their situation; and to facilitate conflict prevention, resolution and transformation.
Our areas of expertise include peacebuidling, conflict sensitivity, knowledge building, advocacy and media.
