About Business Network
Cord is an international organisation inspired by the Christian message of fairness and peace.
We believe that a peaceful society is one in which every individual has the opportunity to realise his or her potential to have a full life, and we dream of a world in which every individual enjoys the dignity of fair treatment and the hope of a more positive future.
We work in conflict and post-conflict societies with people of all faiths and none to enable them to address and overcome the root causes of conflict.
We do this by helping communities to work together so that:
women and men have a better chance to earn a living
governments understand their people’s needs better
families can invest in their future and send children to school
Over almost 50 years, Cord and our partners have empowered people and their governments to work together to heal past wounds and promote present well-being.
For us, every opportunity to have dignity and hope is a success, and every dream is a step on the road to lasting peace.
