WE ENVISION an Africa free from the fear of assault rifles. Today, millions of assault rifles plague Africa. Responsible for countless deaths, they enable and exacerbate violence against women and children, cause mis-allocation of resources and prevent economic growth.
Global and local leadership must be fostered and inspired to address the presence and use of these weapons.
OUR RESOLVE was born several years ago, when we learned firsthand about the devastating impact of assault rifles in Africa. These military weapons - mostly old, cheap and illicit - take lives and the potential for social and economic development.
We decided to create something compelling and substantial to change what people believed was possible to do about the problem.
WE SEEK TO INSPIRE a new vision of what beauty and legacy can be - to generate interest and action in removing assault weapons from conflict regions.
WE FUND the removal and destruction of AK47s and other assault rifles from conflict areas.
To date we have funded the destruction of more than 50,000 assault rifles in Africa.
WE AIM TO EMPOWER a generation for whom this mission is a common sense imperative - to help themselves, and others, to build prosperity.
