WHO WE ARE
Over Zero was founded in response to the global need to counteract and prevent identity-based violence and other forms of group-targeted harm.
We emerged as an outgrowth of Sisi ni Amani International, an organization founded to strengthen local violence prevention efforts through leveraging communication-based tools. Over Zero builds on this work to address a broader geographic and existential mandate: to harness the power of communication to prevent, resist, and rise above identity-based violence and other forms of group-targeted harm.
As a translator, curator, and connector, we work with community leaders, civil society organizations, and researchers to develop and implement practical tools and launch effective interventions. Our interdisciplinary and cross-sector approach contribute to the broader field of identity-based violence prevention.
Our team brings a wide set of skills, experiences, and perspectives to our work, from grassroots peacebuilding to behavioral science.
