AVP Kenya: Alternatives to Violence Project

Alternatives to Violence Project : Kenya Supporting people to deal with conflict and violence

An introduction to AVP

The Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) is a training programme enabling participants to deal with potentially violent situations in new and creative ways.

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.  They 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
