Universities: Training the future leaders of our country

Young people pursuing their careers in universities in South Africa are the future leaders of our country. As such their ability to uphold the human rights and dignity of all will contribute significantly to the success or failure of our democracy.

Phaphama Initiatives workshops, based on the Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) methodology, provide an experiential leadership and human relationship training model that complements the academic and professional training students receive at university. This programme is not only for student leaders, but for all young people who have a vision of transforming the often competitive, destructive and highly inequitable workplace environments prevalent in society today to ones that foster collaboration, constructive communication and respect for all.
