Innovation & Cross-Cutting Themes

We work in some of the most volatile regions in the world, which means that unpredictable challenges can arise at any moment. From ongoing forced migration to the different forms of violence, through our efforts, we maintain the flexibility to effectively take action, and adapt, during times of crisis.

We have integrated trauma-informed approaches to our work, including Mindfulness and group Cognitive Behavioral Therapy – that can be implemented at a community level – as well as Girls’ and Masculinity programming that aim to shift gender paradigms. Our programs are evidence-based and we conduct practice-based research (including randomized-control trials) to ensure that we are achieving sustained impact on the children, youth, and communities we work with.
