What makes DWAG unique as an organization is truly the heart and passion of the individuals who work, volunteer, or are involved with making DWAG’s program’s successful. DWAG’s foundation is passionate individuals who are working on strategic and well-thought out programs and entry points to make a grassroots impact. 

I have no doubt in my mind that DWAG has made a difference and will continue to make a difference despite all of the challenges and obstacles they face in the nature of their work.

DWAG’s comparative advantage is a deep historical, cultural, and inclusive understanding of the past and current conflict in Darfur; and how this state of conflict affects the daily life and challenges faced by Darfuris in seeking peace and development.

DWAG’s work is aimed at on one of the most challenging and harshest regions for NGOs in terms of the inherent challenges of trying to address the problems of an area rooted in conflict, but also in terms of operational and logistical capacity, and government skepticism.
