About
South Africa cannot afford to spend state or donor funds on violence prevention programmes that are not effective or inadvertently cause more harm. The VPF is therefore finding new ways of communicating and collaborating.
Opportunities
The VPF will be running their facilitation course across nine days in April, May and June. Applications close 21 February 2022. For more information, click here

How the VPF works
