                                         What is Bridges of Hope?
    Bridges of Hope is a package of powerful and practical participatory training materials, activities and
    behaviour change techniques. These enable people to explore and address a wide range of wellness issues
    around HIV prevention, support, VCT, treatment and positive living, linked to achieving their life goals and
    dreams. The activities and methodologies are designed to ‘touch the heart, not just the head’ - they actively
    engage and involve participants in a way that enables them to internalise the messages, and apply them in a
    practical way to their own personal situation.      All activities are designed so that they can be used
    effectively with both literate and non-literate groups.

    The Bridges of Hope package has been continuously developed, updated and refined by the Training
    Consultant, Peter Labouchere since its inception in 2000. It is now being used in over 60 countries
    worldwide with a diverse range of business and community programmes.

                    Awards won by Bridges of Hope based programmes
