African Leadership And Reconciliation Ministries (ALARM) is a charitable, non-profit, non-governmental organization with perpetual succession, whose mission is exclusively charitable religious and educational.
ALARM is faith based and was founded in 1994 in response to the Rwandan genocide. Thousands of people were murdered, many were forced to seek refuge in neighboring countries. The church was also affected. Over 70 percent of Rwandan pastors were either killed or forced to flee.
Similary, violent ethnic, civil and political events were escalating in Uganda, Southern Sudan, and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) among other countries in East and Central Africa. These events adversely affected the Christian church in those areas and continue to do so to date.
As a result, ALARM, seeks to promote servant leadership, biblical forgiveness and reconciliation, conflict management in Africa. As an Africa-based and African-led organization, ALARM has expanded and currently operates in eight countries in East and Central Africa, namely, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda, with its headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya
