Great Lakes Peace Foundation

Great Lakes Peace Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides emergency relief, rehabilitation, development assistance, and program services to vulnerable communities victims of War, Rapes, and Social injustice in the Great Lakes Region of Africa. We advocate for enduring peace with a mission of mobilizing the communities, local leaders, and all involved in conflicts to become more engaged in the cause of peace-building in the Great Lakes Region of Africa.

Our work includes:

​Working with local religious leaders, school board members, as well as adult students in reenacting peace among tribes.

Contacting different tribal armies, militant and rebel groups; and community members.

Organizing training, meetings, and conferences in both urban and rural areas communicating forgiveness, love, peace and unity amongst all local groups.

Rallying local leaders and opposing armies by encouraging them to become peace mediators among the African refugees in the United States and those still in the Great Lakes Region of Africa… until all can say to one another. “I am responsible for PEACE!”

Our History

Birume, who now lives in the United States, created the organization to bring back PEACE, Forgiveness, and to assist vulnerable people and victims of wars living in the Africa.

Our Mission

We proclaim and seek to build a foundation of FORGIVENESS, love, unity; and enduring PEACE by providing opportunities and mechanisms for groups involved in and affected by the conflicts to interact, share lessons and experiences with the goal to jointly participate in rebuilding, reconstruction, and rehabilitations efforts between and amongst the communities in the Great Lakes region of Africa.

Our Values

We believe that reconciliation and integrated programming is the key to providing durable peace, stability, and successful development in the Great Lakes Region of Africa

Our focus is on serving areas that have not received due attention. In several large-scale crises, Great Lakes Peace Foundation has been the first U.S. based NGO to provide high-impact development and emergency programming to communities in need. We believe that as a humanitarian agency, a main function is to communicate the pronounced needs of the vulnerable and affected populations to the international community. We also consult closely with local communities in order to ensure that its programs do not impose solutions from the outside, but rather address the needs and requirements for the long term. This grassroots approach proves effective in fostering an environment of self-help and sustainability.

Great Lakes Peace Foundation - What We Do

Reconciliation is the act of restoring friendly relations as when former enemies agree to an amicable truce. Such as has been accomplished between countries, provinces, states, tribes etc. Reconciliation means accepting the previously unacceptable. The G L P F will enhance the prospects for societies that are tolerant and live in harmony together in the region.

GLPF helps reconcile and restore relationships within local neighborhoods with a mixture of opposing African tribes and ethnicities within the region and abroad.

GLPF helps conflicting tribes unite by endorsing reconciliation via forgiveness.

Bishop Desmond Tutu established the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and was active until the sharing of common truth. The purpose was to reveal past wrongdoing by a government or particular individuals, in hope of resolving remaining conflicts. As part of the peacemaking strategy, confession and cohabitation were necessary.
