Give Me a Future is a project of the South Hesse Nonviolent Communication Network. The network has 60 members. The professions are: social worker, teacher, doctor, psychologist, IT specialist, engineer, chemist, tax-official (checking the books). 4 of our trainers are certified by the international Center for Nonviolent Communication. If needed, our projects are supported by other international certified trainers. The network has an annual budget of 8000EUR , the project Give me a future as well.
Purpose of the network:
Trainings for Nonviolent Communication and training of trainers in the Darmstadt region and in crisis regions such as Kenya, Palestine, Ukraine, Philippines. There is also mediation between conflict parties.
In Kenya alone, about 2000 people have attended our courses since 2007.
Locally, 20 trainers were trained to pass on their knowledge.
Purpose of "Give Me a Future":
to pay the school fees for the trainers' children because their parents have less income during our training.
After the end of armed conflicts, "Give Me a Future" provided income for war veterans and vocational courses for young warriors in order to maintain lasting peace.
In precarious settings such as slums, local trainers work as social workers and reduce everyday violence through empowerment and income-generating activities - supported by Give Me a Future.
Im ersten Halbjahr 2021 wurden vier Schulungen gemäß Plan vor Ort durchgeführt mit insgesamt 65 Teilnehmer-innen, die zu verbessertem Verständnis für die gegenseitigen Bedürfnisse und einem verständnisvollerem Umgang miteinander unter den verschiedenen Volksgruppen und Religionen führten.
