Overcoming COVID-19 in a peaceful way in Zimbabwe

Our partner in Zimbabwe, Envision Women’s Trust, has been working with their local police force since 2020. Together, they’ve provided more than 90 recruits with conflict resolution and management training. These officers now know how to deal with COVID-19 in a safe, non-violent way, where previously interactions were marred by violence. 

One of the officers Envision trained had this to say about their experience:

“There have always been tensions between these public drivers and us, the police. The conflict transformation skills are helping us to exercise non-violent approaches to deal with such situations.”

Envision is reducing violence and helping to keep their community safe.

Thank you for helping to make this lifesaving work possible.
