Organization for Nonviolence and Development (ONAD) in partnership with QSG (Quaker Service Germany) organized and implemented a three day Alternative to Violence Project (AVP) Basic Training from 27th to 29th /08/2015.
The training brought in twenty participants: twelve (12) participants were males and eight (8) of them were females.
It is beyond doubt that the training recognized the diversity of the people of South Sudan, i.e. participants came from Governmental and Non-governmental Organizations, Faith Based Organizations, Community Based Organizations and political parties.
The following topics were covered: Affirmation. Communication, Community trust building and Conflict transformation.
The participants came up with the following Recommendations; the recommendations were both to the participants themselves and ONAD as an organization.
--> Organization for Nonviolence and Development should offer more trainings to the people at the grassroots and further trainings to beneficiaries who underwent the basic training.
--> The days for the training should be increased from three days to at least one week (five days).
--> ONAD should include other topics of benefit to be covered during trainings.
