Mission & Vision
Radio La Benevolencija Humanitarian Tools Foundation (La Benevolencija) is a Dutch NGO that empowers groups and individuals who are the target of hate speech and ensuing acts. It broadcasts radio soaps, discussions and educational programmes, in combination with grass roots activities that provide citizens in vulnerable societies with knowledge on how to recognise and resist manipulation to violence and how to heal trauma, encouraging them to be active bystanders against incitement and violence.
Using academically researched methodologies, La Benevolencija develops “knowledge tools” – guides on how to deal with an array of manipulative pressures that move individuals and whole societies to physical and mental harm. These tools are presented in media campaigns that use entertainment and education methods to reach audiences that are affected by violence.
