About NPO REALs (Reach Alternatives)
We, REALs, focus more on before the conflict than after it happens. Since lives that have been lost cannot be recovered, we will strengthen our expertise in “prevention” before they occur. When it does happen, our focus is on preventing it from happening again. In order to prevent conflicts, we are focusing on developing local human resources. We train local people to be problem-solving specialists so that they can proactively solve problems. Change people, change systems, change society. We are working in Afghanistan, Syria, South Sudan, Turkey, Kenya, and Somalia with a view to changing society as a whole, not just temporary changes.
