East and Central Africa is the deadliest war zone in the world.  Leaders there use overwhelming violence and mass corruption to maintain power and loot the region’s incredible natural resource wealth, which includes oil, diamonds, gold, and a host of valuable minerals.  Co-founded by George Clooney and John Prendergast, The Sentry is composed of financial forensic investigators, policy analysts, investigative journalists, and regional experts who follow the dirty money and build investigative cases against the corrupt networks most responsible for Africa’s deadliest conflicts, enabling governments and financial institutions to take action against them. The Sentry’s partner, the Enough Project, works closely with The Sentry and undertakes high-level advocacy with policymakers around the world as well as public campaigns that mobilize students, faith-based groups, celebrities, and others. www.enoughproject.org
