Pays/Région : Irak

IATI Identifiant  : XM-DAC-7-PPR-4000001484

Durée : Planned start date : June 1, 2018 // Planned end date : June 30, 2019

The project will provide a core group (56) of returnee (and IDP) women (14 in 4 locations each) who are survivors of violence with training to enable them to coach and guide a broader segment of women in their communities. Working in teams of 2-3, trained women “coaches” will reach out to and work with a broader group of mothers in the community to increase their understanding about violent extremism (VE) and coach them to build family resilience and evolve strategies and tools that promote tolerance and moderation in the family and the community as a counter to VE. Further, the project will document audio-visual testimonies of women who have been impacted by violence as a tool to raise awareness about the impact of VE and advocate for women’s right to play a larger role in combating radicalization and extremism. The value of empowering women to combat extremism and radicalization has been well studied and documented in the literature in this field that discusses new approaches to include women in frontline resilience to counter VE.
