The Project

Empowering Young Women

Our goal is to empower young women and girls to counter extremism and radicalisation.

Education

Through intimate and informative workshops, our Young Ambassadors will learn about issues surrounding extremism and consolidate their own knowledge and views through open, meaningful discussion.

Campaigning

Our Young Ambassadors will learn how to get their voices heard to enact change online.

Creativity and Innovation

Our Young Ambassadors will have their say by creating their own campaigns countering extremism and extremist narratives.

Social Change

We want to empower our Young Ambassadors with the education and skills they need to make a difference in society and get their voices heard.

Countering Extremism

Through education, creativity and creating space for young women to speak about this issue, we want to influence others and prevent extremism in all its forms.
