Our purpose at Peace Bridges is to encourage nonviolent conflict resolution and peacemaking at the community level. While Bend is our home, we seek to promote peace and peacemaking in communities throughout the world through our A Bridge To Peace projects.
Another concurrent A Bridge to Peace project is our sponsorship of a small African orphanage, Better Life Children’s Home, in Kibwezi, Kenya. Presently, Better Life supports 10 school-aged children and minors, along with a community outreach program. Better Life is a small home, but a safe and caring environment for the children who live there. In 2009, we began sponsorship of an effort to develop a well in another eastern Kenyan community, at Kiaoni. We consider both Kenyan projects as important incremental efforts toward peacemaking.
