KIDS FOR KIDS aims to help children living in remote villages in Darfur, Sudan who live lives of inexcusable hardship and to give them the chance of a better life. We seek to enable families to stay in their villages in the midst of the conflict by helping to improve their lives and livelihoods and lifting them out of poverty. Our long-term aim is to give Darfur a chance by sustaining villages as vibrant institutions - without this people living in the camps will have nothing to return to once peace is restored.

FirstLight Trust's mission is to rehabilitate those leaving and those who have left the Armed Forces and Emergency Services back into their communities, whatever that looks like for each individual. FirstLight Trust's key motivation for helping members of the military and emergency service community is the lack of grass roots support readily available to those who are frequently considered by other charitable organisations to be beyond available resources, who have 'fallen through the net' of charitable support. These individuals may have been discharged prior to their diagnosed needs having been met, or before the full depth of (complex) need has been identified; after leaving they have often spiralled down through debt, addictions, may be unemployed or are often deemed 'unemployable'. FirstLight Trust has and continues to fine-tune the delivery of such support and services to those who have 'fallen through the net' whilst increasingly, as each hub beds into its community, supporting those who have not yet reached these stages. This motivation to 'do something' practical imbues the charity; veteran's needs (not neediness) lie at the heart of all that it does. FirstLight is a solutions-based charity; when problems present through the door (and every member of the charity works at the cliff face dealing with veterans in need) the charity aims to find solutions. Hence its increasing focus on the problems caused by isolation and mental health. Doing nothing or 'handing off' problems is not a solution that FirstLight is comfortable with nor does it answer the problems or needs; and every attempted suicide in a community highlights the ever-growing need for practical, community-based solutions.
International Alert works with people directly affected by conflict to build lasting peace. Together, peace is within our power. We focus on solving the root causes of conflict with people from across divides. From the grassroots to policy level, we all come together to build everyday peace, from the ground up. Peace is just as much about communities living together, side by side, and resolving their differences without resorting to violence as it is about people signing a treaty or laying down their arms. Peace is when you can walk your children to school in safety, feed your family or make a living, no matter who you are. That is why we bring people together to inspire and amplify our voice for peace. In collaboration with local communities, partners, businesses and policy-makers, we turn our in-depth research and analysis into practical solutions that make a difference on the ground.
