Stop The Violence

Stop the Violence Project

A six month training and mentorship programme delivered under the auspices of African Australian Mentoring Programme, it is a concept focused on young Africans with the aim of providing mentorship in capacity building, self-esteem and leadership. This project is focused on identifying what violence is and creating awareness on how to stop it both within and outside of African communities, especially amongst the youths. We work together with Edith Cowan University, WA Police, Department of Local Government Affairs, and Office of Multicultural Interests to deliver this programme. STV as it also known partners with non-African organizations and bodies through OAC WA youth department to engage community base solutions to stopping violence in Perth. The programme was first launched on the 18th February and ended 2nd of September 2017. Second phase will commence first quarter of 2018.
