Remembering the Holocaust and responding to Kosovo led two brothers to launch the Aegis Trust in 2000. Find out what convinced them that genocide is preventable.
Aegis works where people are at risk of mass atrocities, or still confronting a legacy of genocide, or both. We also work where decision-makers have global reach.
Community and faith leaders in at-risk regions are asking us to help them prevent mass atrocities. Here are some of the reasons they believe Aegis has essential expertise.
We depend on our partnerships with change-making organisations, governments, fellow non-profits, and people of vision everywhere to accomplish our mission.
