Meet the Burundian pastor working to end domestic and electoral violence

    Pastor Parfaite Ntahuba of the Quaker Peace Network in Burundi discusses her work creating an Early Warning Early Response team to prevent violence on many fronts.

    We provide educational resources on the safe and effective use of nonviolence, with the recognition that it’s not about putting the right person in power but awakening the right kind of power in people. We advance a higher image of humankind while empowering people to explore the question: How does nonviolence work, and how can I actively contribute to a happier, more peaceful society?

    Waging Nonviolence partners with other organizations and publishes their work.
