Rights for all beings and the planet we share

United Commons is a global movement for peace, justice and freedom.

Empower Children

A global movement for peace dedicated to child education, health, wellness, and social and emotional learning (SEL). We encourage connections based on mutual respect, healthy self-esteem, empathy and family honouring.

Intelligent Aid

We provide aid dictated by community needs and direction. We believe stable economies are not built off of charity and our goal, as always, is to become redundant as soon as possible in the communities we serve.

Strengthen Community

We take a bottom-up approach to our programs, working exclusively with local stakeholders embeded in the communities we aim to support. We recognise and center reconciliation, reparations, environment stewardship and justice.

CURRENT PROJECTS

We are delighted to be partnered with Palestinian Animal League in the West Bank, Palestine. Their work acknowledges the connection between animal, human and environmental welfare.  They are currently addressing the urgent needs of traumatised children in the West Bank and Gaza.

OUR HISTORY

Founder, Holly Elissa, travelled to northern Uganda in 2008. There she met Oneka Richard, former refugee, and together they formed Caleb’s Hope, a Canadian/Ugandan NGO working with displaced women and children affected by the LRA genocide in the remote Acholiland region roughly 17km from the border of South Sudan.

 

OUR HISTORY

We are only as strong as our community of volunteers and supporters.
