The nonviolent communication netwerk Darmstadt-Suedhessen e. V. has been supporting the proliferation of nonviolent communication in Africa for years. The giraffe key rings are made by members of a group called "U-turn" in a slum in Nairobi. Members are young people who support each other in a legal way to provide themselves with a living.
Meanwhile there is one member, Steven, who looks after the department "Jewellery/Pearls". He designed the giraffe keyring according to our template and produces them jointly with other members. the revenue is shared throughout the group.
Today there is a football project, by which before the game starts a short item of nonviolent communication is integrated, a mushroom production (supported by non-profit-making organisations) a sanitary project with toilets and showers that will hopefully soon be going into operation (there are only a few toilets and no showers).
All the proceeds from these sales are donated via this account to:
