Welcome to Great Lakes Restoration
Great Lakes Restoration (GLR) is a non-profit organization with the goal of “Building the Peace” by assisting the poor people in the Eastern African countries of the Great Lakes region, primarily the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania, in the post-conflict recovery from recent warfare, through the development of the human capital capacity.
The projects sponsored by GLR are designed to stimulate creativity, work, ambition and hope. These are not “quick-fix” projects but are designed to establish the long term future growth, peace, and stability in the Great Lakes region.
Our projects, our “buildings”, will address the following components inherent in
“Building the Peace”:
Our PROJECTS page synopsizes our specific plans to address these basic needs. A detailed proposal is available upon request from GLR.
GLR is organized and operated as a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation pursuant to section 501 (c)(3).
