WE BELIEVE IN CHANGE

ANEC exists to promote and provide training in nonviolent methods of conflict and fighting oppression. We educate the Tibetan Community of the importance of active participation in their fight for democratic freedoms, thereby encouraging realistic hope and strengthening commitment to active nonviolent resistance.
ANEC runs workshops in active nonviolence. These are undertaken on a weekly basis for newly arrived Tibetan refugees at the seat of the Tibetan Government in Exile, Dharamsala, India and periodically at Tibetan settlements throughout India. In addition, ANEC produces and distributes literature pertaining to Active Nonviolence and holds weekly sessions for visitors to Dharamsala. These provide an insight into the Sino-Tibetan issue and promote a culture of Active Nonviolence throughout the world.

“At the center of non-violence stands the principle of love.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
