Arizza on the role of education in countering violent extremism and understanding the root economic and social causes which lead to extremist ideologies.
We are ten young people from diverse backgrounds who have, in our own ways, sought to find positive responses to violent extremism. Now, brought together by the Kofi Annan Foundation, we have joined forces to learn from each other’s experiences. We will share these experiences with our communities to support others driven into extremism by hopelessness, rage and false promises. We need your help to convey our messages to your peers and your community.
