Cape Town Peace Centre on the up - preview
The Quaker-run Cape Town Peace Centre has unveiled a new, more focused approach, in a bid to take steps forward after suffering financial problems
  • The centre is now involved only in projects that support the principles of nonviolence, equality, social responsibility and the ending of racial prejudice


  • Alternatives to Violence Project
    The centre is particularly promoting Alternatives to Violence Projects (AVP) in schools, where violence levels remain a concern
  • One school pupil commented upon the difference the course had made: 'Thank you AVP for opening my eyes… Before I joined AVP, I did not see and feel the violence…'
