FPTPís African Great Lakes Initiative Plans AVP-Rwanda Project
At AGLIís successful February, 2000, co-facilitation with AVP-Uganda, three Rwanda Quakers joined the Ugandans for two of the introductory AVP workshops. After this experience they requested AGLI help bring AVP to Rwanda. This project has been broken down into three phases:
Phase I: February/March, 2001 Four experienced AVP facilitators, two from AVP-Uganda and two international Team Members, will facilitate a total of 9 AVP workshops in various parts of Rwanda. These will include 6 basic workshops, 2 advanced workshops, and one training-for-trainers. Two people each from Burundi and eastern Congo will also attend some of these workshops. An organizational structure for AVP-Rwanda will also be organized.
Phase II: April through September, 2001 Those Rwandan AVP facilitators who took the training-for-facilitator workshop will conduct ten basic AVP workshops during this period. One of the Uganda AVP facilitators will return who will help lead the first four workshops.
III: November, 2001 Two Ugandan/international facilitators will
return to Rwanda to jointly lead two more advanced level workshops and
two training-for-facilitators. There will also be consultation on the
development of the AVP-Rwanda organization and exploration of future
sources of funding.
