The NVP Foundation
The Non-Violence Project Foundation, (NVP) was registered in Bagnes Valais, Switzerland in 1993. NVP is a non-profit foundation with the mission to inspire, motivate and engage young people to understand how to solve conflicts without resorting to violence. The objective is to reach out to as many schools and sport clubs around the world as possible.
17 years of educational outreach
We have a strong track record having educated and trained 5 million youth, teachers and sport coaches around the world. Our well documented content is evidence based and most programs are included in our program library.
70 awards for best practise
Our education programs and our outreach initiatives have won 70 awards for best practise. The awards include the Presidential Daily Light Award, received by President Bill Clinton, the Paul Harris Fellow Award given by Rotary International, the American National Safety Council Award for best practise and the Weed & Seed Award given by US Justice Department in 2009.
Funded by supporters
Our partners during the years have come from all walks of life. From the business community, governments, education authorities, sports organisations and from private donations. We strongly believe in partnerships across all borders. Therefore we also partner with other NGO’s, where we see strong synergies. There is no reason to reinvent wheels.
