Nigeria Peace Project 2016

I met Franca Onyibor from Nigeria in the Parent Peer Leadership Program of the Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC).  I was fasci­na­ted to hear her speak of child­ren in her life, hear from her how afri­can child­ren live.  I was touched by the live­li­ness, joy of living and inner riches of the peop­le she descri­bed.  Outside dan­cing wit­hout shoes, sin­ging and figh­t­ing, play­ing and thin­king out pranks for each other…

Franca is on the path of cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on as of this wri­ting, as a com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on trai­ner with the CNVC.  Her visi­on is the crea­ti­on of a regio­nal NVC Center in Nigeria.  She is sup­por­ted on this path by NVC trai­ners in Europe and in the United States.  In the­se times vio­lence is esca­la­ting bet­ween Muslims and Christians in Nigeria.  Franca wis­hes to sha­re NVC with both par­ties, so that can find each other again in their huma­ni­ty, so that they can build up trust bet­ween each other once more.

In the forth­co­m­ing autumn of 2016 she co-orga­ni­zes a peace pro­ject to this end, tog­e­ther with CNVC-cer­ti­fied trai­ner Duke Duchscherer.

Please look at this page — a call for finan­ci­al sup­port — and sha­re it with one or two of your fri­ends. There you will find more detail­ed infor­ma­ti­on on this peace pro­ject.

Thank you!
