Second part of NVC-introduction with volunteers of Never Again Rwanda August 24, 2019
One of the students in our Department of Peace and Conflict Studies BA Program is working as a volunteer in our partner organization “Never Again Rwanda (NAR)” (www.neveragain.org). He took up the desire of different of his fellow volunteers to have an introduction to Nonviolent Communication (NVC). In a team with two CRASPD staff, we held a one day introductory on NVC in March with those volunteers, and in August, we continued with a second day where we discussed the key distinctions between observation and interpretation, feeling and thought, need and strategy and request and demand. We also worked on the option of connecting with someone who gives us a tough/violent message by empathically listening to him/her.
Film Screening SWEET DREAMS on International Women’s Day
On the occasion of International Women’s Day, CRASPD, in cooperation with the PIASS Peace Club, showed the film “SWEET DREAMS” telling the amazing story of women who mustered courage and creativity to combine their journey of reconciliation with innovative entrepreneurship. A great audience split into groups using creative methods to show the main ideas of the film by drawings and drama, as well as narration. Funds were collected to support the continuation of the work of the women’s cooperative. WomensDayFilmScreening
