of the African Great Lakes Initiative
The African Great Lakes Initiative (AGLI) of the Friends
Peace Teams strengthens, supports, and promotes peace activities at the
grassroots level in the Great Lakes region of Africa (Burundi, Congo,
Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda). To this end, AGLI responds to requests
from local religious and non-governmental organizations that focus on
conflict management, peace building, trauma healing, and reconciliation.
AGLI sponsors Peace Teams composed of members from local partners and
the international community. We are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization.
