In the first half of 2018, ALPS designed and implemented a pilot survey assessing resilience to violent extremism amongst youth in Cape Town, South Africa. In 2018, ALPS began to roll out the survey in two vulnerable regions of Southern Africa: Pwani, Tanzania and Cabo Delgado, Mozambique. Community entry and partner relationship-building activities took place in the second half of 2018 and fieldwork is currently underway in both countries.

Since 2016, ALPS has worked in partnership with the Somali Association of South Africa (SASA) to promote integration and increase self-reliance amongst Somali refugees and asylum seekers living in the Western Cape and Gauteng. Over the past three years, ALPS has successfully applied a community-based approach to deliver classes, referrals, and workshops to over 6000 beneficiaries a year.

P2P Dialogues is a 15-month project that aims to foster social cohesion in South African communities by improving relationships between foreign nationals and locals. ALPS, in partnership with local facilitators and community organisations, will host a series of dialogues that aim to provide a platform to promote mutual understanding, shared identities, trust, empathy and resilient social ties.

OUR PROJECTS

Dates: 2017 - 2018

Funder: British High Commission, Swedish Embassy, American High Commission

Location: South Africa

In 2018, ALPS played a key role in driving conversations on violent extremism in South Africa and the region by continuing its PVE workshop series with support from the British and Australian High Commissions. The objective of the annual workshop series is to provide a platform for sustained engagement, learning, dialogue and problem-solving on fostering resilience to violent extremism, in all forms, in South Africa. 

Dates: 2018 - 2019

Funder: US Department of State

Location: Hermanus, Western Cape 

In September 2018, the US Department of State provided ALPS with funding for emergency humanitarian assistance in Zwelihle, Hermanus after protests resulted in large-scale looting and displacement of foreign nationals. Zwelihle had already been selected by ALPS as a priority site for the P2P Dialogues project, which made ALPS an ideal candidate to provide support and assistance. The combined funding from USAID and US DOS will allow for a two-pronged approach of social cohesion programming and humanitarian assistance.

Dates: September 2018

Funder: US Consulate General Cape Town; U.S. State Department Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DRL)

Location: Cape Town, South Africa

In September 2018, the U.S. Consular General of Cape Town and ALPS Resilience co-hosted a workshop on religious freedom, religious intolerance, xenophobia, and social cohesion.  Participants included a U.S. delegation from the Departments of State, Justice, and Homeland Security. South African government officials were also in attendance, including Hon John Jeffery, MP, Deputy Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development.
