Alternatives to Violence Project AVP (http://www.avpinternational.org/)

The Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) is a training programme enabling participants to deal with potentially violent situations in new and creative ways. Workshops are non-residential, run by our trained facilitators and experiential (not based on lectures).

Our workshops use the shared experience of participants, interactive exercises, games and role-plays to examine the ways in which we respond to situations where injustice, prejudice, frustration and anger can lead to aggressive behaviour and violence.

An AVP workshop can help you to:

  • manage strong feelings such as anger and fear
  • deal more effectively with risk and danger
  • build good relationships with other people
  • communicate well in difficult situations
  • recognise the skills you already have and learn new ones
  • be true to yourself while respecting other people
  • understand why conflict happens

 

Carefronting Nigeria coordinates AVP activities in Northern Nigeria and facilitates AVP workshops. Carefronting is also a member organization of AVP Nigeria and AVP International.

 

 

 

 

 

Damietta Peace Initiative Africa (http://www.damiettapeace.org.za)

The Damietta Peace Initiative is a Franciscan, inter-faith driven peace enterprise for the Continent of Africa, built around the core values of nonviolence, reconciliation and respect for creation. It is a pro-active response to a hunger that is widely felt among people today, that the sectarian divisions in our society must yield to the big shared human questions, namely, that we humans are locked inside another story. The evolving universe story. And part of this evolutionary story is that humans must learn to live as friendly beings towards each other and towards nature. It is imperative to look at the big picture and see where non-violence fits into the scheme of things.

Carefronting Nigeria supports and collaborates with Damietta Peace Initiative Africa, Nigeria Office.
