WHO WE ARE

About Us

We are a global community of pragmatic optimists, experts, practitioners, and advocates—with a vision of a world free of conflict.

War does not end on the battlefield. War—and its terrible legacy of destruction, death, and sickness—lives on in succeeding generations, in those who had little and nothing to do with war and have to pay the heaviest price.

Our work began with working with the most vulnerable and most impacted in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, and in the U.S., to raise awareness about and address the ongoing legacies of the U.S. war in southeast Asia. The work we conducted for over 14 years was grounded in and guided by decades of on-ground and accurate research and field work, surveys, data gathering, and evidence-based analysis.

14 YEARS OF IMPACT

What We've Done and Will Continue to Do
Through our distinct body of vision, practice, and change—along with our research, programs, and advocacy—we work with practitioners to support families and communities, provide educational opportunities and access to healthcare, and build biodiversity and ecosystem stability across all land in post-war Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, and in the U.S.

How We Work
Our holistic approach to upholding the right and dignity of all to economic security, good health, education, and to healthy land, vegetation, forests, and bodies of water and biodiversity has enabled us to continue fostering a world free of conflict:

  • Coordinate programs in Vietnam and Laos to mitigate the impact of wartime use of Agent Orange.

  • Give hundreds of children with disabilities access to health care and educational resources.

  • Provide income-generating support through microfinances, among other kinds of loans, and improving housing for families caring for severely disabled children in Vietnam.

  • Research the extent of Dioxin contamination in the Lao PDR and survey villages in the sprayed regions.

  • Maintain Agent Orange Record, a comprehensive online source on all things Agent Orange-related.

  • Provide assistance and information to affected people in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and in the U.S., including Vietnam War-era veterans and their families.

  • Advocate for increased and proactive support and funding from governmental, nongovernmental and people-to-people sources for post-war remediation efforts.

  • Collaborate with leaders, other NGOs, experts and journalists to raise awareness about the ongoing impacts of UXOs and other Explosive Remnants of War through facilitating events and more.
