How We Work
ATJLF invests seventy percent (70%) of its financial resources and technical capacity to support projects and initiatives that are geared towards rebuilding communities, empowering citizens, and transforming war-torn societies by confronting their past and laying foundations for a peaceful, cohesive society. We fund community-embedded and innovative projects and initiatives that fall within one or all of our thematic pillars, namely; truth telling and truth seeking; reconciliation and communal cohesion, justice and accountability; and memorialization. We support initiatives that are closely tailored to our legacy objectives – initiatives that are meaningful, impactful, sustainable, and have the potential for growth beyond the life of the grant.
ATJLF partners with its grantees to drive TJ promotion in grassroots communities in the focal countries. In addition to this, ATJLF also has strategic partnerships with regional organizations like the African Union Commission (AUC) and the Economic Communities of West African States (ECOWAS). Through these partnerships, we provide technical and financial support to TJ work in the regions and the respective countries.
ATJLF organizes and supports the convening of several virtual and in-person events geared toward the promotion of TJ and reparations in Africa. Examples of such convening are the African Union Annual TJ Conference, and the ATJLF webinar series.
