Burundi: Forty-six more students in Burundi receive training in active nonviolence


19/1/19 - As part of the continuation of the project, "Empowering new generations on active nonviolence and entrepreneurship", a new training course for second language students was organised in Burundi. Kinama Municipal High School, on 10 January allocated time to the establishment of a club. The participants numbered 46, including 29 girls and 17 boys. The training was provided by two trainers Joséphine Karerwa and Evrard Ntirampeba, with the collaboration of the project coordinator at the Kamenge Youth Center, Mr. Claude Nkurunziza. The subject of the training covered module 1 of the trainer's guide, the content of which included the types of violence, the stages of violence, the mechanisms of violence, equivalence relations versus revenge. The students who benefited from the course naturally appreciated the topic and suggested that, as far as possible, there should be further in-depth instruction to draw lessons for the future.
