The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC)
The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) is a Quaker organization that promotes lasting peace with justice as a practical expression of faith in action. Drawing on continuing spiritual insights and working with people of many backgrounds, we nurture the seeds of change and respect for human life that transform social relations and systems. AFSC has more than nine decades of experience building peace in communities worldwide. Founded in the crucible of World War I by Quakers who aimed to serve both humanity and country while being faithful to their commitment to nonviolence, AFSC has worked throughout the world in conflict zones, in areas affected by natural disasters, and in oppressed communities to address the root causes of war and violence. During World War I, the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) was founded in 1917 to give young conscientious objectors ways to serve without joining the military or taking lives. AFSC works both in USA and International locations. Among International locations, Burundi, South Sudan, Somalia, and Zimbabwe are where AFSC implements its projects.
Currently, AFSC is implementing projects in Somalia and South Sudan funded by BftW.
