It is so easy to fall into a pattern of apathy as we go through our lives. Our organization was born out of a commitment to stop passing over the real issues of society, and deal with them head-on. We have set out to aid those who need it most. Lady of Peace Community Foundation is here to help, and we believe that change is possible when we put our hearts and minds into it.
Our intention to build peace is fundamentally premised on programs and interventions that are designed to end violence against women and children. These focus areas sharpen and grow the need to accelerate the generation equality dream we would like to achieve by 2030.
