The Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) in Newcastle has just developed a flyer with information about AVP. (Click here for a PDF Version.) We hope to increase the number of workshops we offer locally next and are hoping to partner with some family and community services in offering the workshops. Next week we start offering weekly sessions with the Samaritans’ Recovery Point (which supports people recently out of prison or rehabilitation). Hopefully the flyer will help us promote it a bit more.
AVP has come so far since I started facilitating in the 1990s. In particular I have learnt a great deal from having contact with international groups. In the flyer, the graphic for AVP Foundations and Outcomes was based on a leaflet from AVP in Namibia. It is inspiring being part of such an international organisation.

Hi Graeme, I’d like to be able to train with you and learn about AVP this year. I have been part of a single AVP group as a participant years ago. And I have an interest in NVC and have work to do to develop a deeper understanding and skill base.
If there are some opportunities for training and collaboration, please think of me for inclusion.
I hope you are well and that the end of year is being kind to you.

Great!!! That would be great. I’ll be in touch.
The Action for Kommunity Development Foundation (TAKODEF) is a civil society organisation based in Uganda and envisions a just and fair society working together with a deep sense of self-belief, belonging, resilience; well-being and health, productivity and prosperity; and with capacity to provide a common voice and power for self-determination while promoting voluntarism and respect for humanity.
The Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) workshop is a great initiative and keep it up. TAKODEF would like to know about the AVP and explore opportunities for working together in promoting the AVP strategies in Uganda.
