Learnings from Participants' Reflections on Strengthening Urban Violence Prevention through the Community Work Programme

CSVR has been researching South Africa's Community Work Programme (CWP) since 2010. In 2016, the organisation commenced with an effort to strengthen urban violence prevention interventions, carried out by CWP participants, by offering furthering training and support in implementing violence prevention interventions. This report shares some of the key learnings from the CWP participants who were involved in this project. Based on their experiences, it highlights some of the potential strengths of this project as well as areas that may need to be revised for future iterations of such initiatives.
