Anti-Violence Day is a violence prevention intervention project.  On a designated day, children are asked to turn in their toy guns for a certificate and a reward.  This will be done through education and raising awareness among children and parents about the hazards of guns and of toy guns.  The collected weapons then will be used by the children themselves, to create work of art. (This is not a toy gun exchange, it is:  Say No to Toy Guns/Toy Weapons & is aiming to prevent violence).
