Mercy Corps is a global team of humanitarians who partner with communities, corporations and governments to transform lives around the world.

Our 5,500+ team members work with people in the world’s most vulnerable communities across 40+ countries. 87 percent of our team is from the countries where they work.

Thanks to our donors, we have provided $4 billion in lifesaving assistance to more than 220 million people over the last 39 years. We believe we must go beyond emergency aid to create more resilient communities, and we believe communities are the best agents of their own change.

Through close collaboration with community members and a wide variety of organizations, we put bold solutions into action and help people triumph over adversity. For the refugee who dreams of rebuilding her home, for the mother who wants a healthy future for her children — for millions of people filled with the power of possibility — we connect people to the resources they need to build better, stronger lives.

We invite you to watch the short video below, learn more about our work, and join us on our journey to change the world for good.

I am Program manager for a land access and security implemented in North Kivu, DRC. The program is called FARM and is implemented by Mercy Corps and Search for Common Ground. We are working with communities, land administration and customary authorities to make sure that: local mechanism are in place and operational to support land conflict resolution, farmers have a greater access to land, on a long term basis, using a formal rental contract, through mediation platforms and negotiation; land adminstration is trusted and efficient in its work, and that land is not overused so the quality of the soil doesnt not degraded over time.

I have a legal/mediation background.
