Vision & mission

Our three beliefs

NOBODY IS BORN VIOLENT

If someone has become violent, he or she can learn to become non-violent.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

Knowledge is the best weapon against violence. Education allows to teach minds, touch hearts and transform lives.

START WITH THE CHILDREN

We strongly support Gandhi’s statement “If you want to change the world, you must start with the children”.

Our vision

CONTRIBUTE TO A LESS VIOLENT WORLD

Violence has many faces: pressure, school bullying, sexual harassment, domestic abuse, mobbing and much more ! The goal of our organization is to contribute to a better world by preventing and reducing all sorts of violent behaviors.

Our mission

INSPIRE, MOTIVATE AND ENGAGE PEOPLE…

Our mission is to inspire, motivate and engage people to manage and prevent conflicts without ever resorting to violence. Our educational focus is based on both prevention, intervention and on measures that address root issues rather than punish behaviors or feed the blame.

…THROUGH EDUCATION AND AWARENESS

The two pillars of our mission are awareness raising and education. Our actions are targeted to all types of audiences: children, teenagers, young adults and adults. Everyone has a role to play in preventing and reducing violence.
