Peace and Conflict Resolution was founded in Bukavu, South-Kivu by Samuel Muderhwa, Mrs. Faida and Dr. David Silvera (Mediator) in 2004 and been registered in D.R.Congo in 2006. Mrs. Faida and Samuel They both completed the high diploma from the school of Mediation in Nairobi in 2006. This challenged them to continue to expand the vision of PCR. The people of Eastern D.R.Congo have passed through unimaginable chaos caused by the wars that have taken place in the region. PCR is a humanitarian organization and not a political one. Its aims to create peace and reconciliation, to bring broken families together, to give vulnerable children hope, and encourage women who have been affected by the war. PCR activities focus on education to nurture and promote responsible decision making and problem solving skills.
PCR is focused on resolving conflict at community level. We strive to establish a society where people and communities are empowered with the skills to overcome conflict and take charge of their destiny. PCR is currently based in South-Kivu but envisages reaching other areas in our country in the future.
· We are committed to reduce and break the cycle of violence and poverty that continues to fuel local community conflict.
· We are committed to promote a culture that nurtures peaceful relations at grass roots level.

· Equipping the generation to come with the leadership capacities and peace building skills necessary to end the cycle of violence.
