Alternatives to Violence Project International AVP

Invitation for the 2008 AVP International Gathering, September 14 to 20, 2008, Bishop Stam Centre, Kakamega, Kenya.

Cost: Self-contained room is $200 plus $50 registration fee. Non-self contained room is $170, plus $50 registration fee. Non-self contained rooms cannot be guaranteed as we need to have 30 females and 30 males. This cost includes room and board between Sunday supper and Saturday breakfast, transportation to and from Nairobi. These costs are calculated at 65 Kenya shillings to the US dollar. If the dollar continues to weaken via the Kenyan shilling by September 2008, these costs could increase to accommodate this decline in the value of the dollar.

Contact person: David Zarembka by e-mail, by phone 254 726 590 783, or by letter: Oxfam, P. O. Box 189, Kipkarren River 50421 Kenya.

AVP Workshops: The AVP organizations in Kenya will be arranging AVP workshops both for the week before and the week after the AVP-International Gathering. In each workshop we would like to have one or two foreign AVP facilitators paired with two Kenyan AVP facilitators.

We ask that anyone who would like to do this contribute $100 to $500 (the more the better) towards these AVP workshops.

Pre-registration: If you plan on attending the AVP-International Gathering in Kenya in September 2008, we would appreciate it if you would let us know. Please email Please also let us know if you would like to facilitate an AVP workshop before or after the Gathering.

Please let us know if you are able to send one or two representatives for your program. We will be looking for assistance but may not be able to meet all needs. Likewise, if you think your program can help sponsor others please let us know.
