By now, we are sure that you have heard of our project Another Way Forward: Empowering Young Women against Extremism. This is a project, run by JAN Trust, that has been kindly been supported by the Institute of Strategic Dialogue (ISD), and Google.org. ISD works to empower new generations against extremism, something that we at JAN Trust aim to do with this project!
Another Way Forward is an exciting new project developed by JAN Trust to empower young women. We will travel to schools to deliver our SAFE workshops (Safeguarding Against Extremism), empowering young female students with the knowledge needed to counter extremism. They will have the opportunity to make their voices heard via campaigning and ultimately making a difference to the lives of young people in the UK!
In addition, there will be an online gendered counter-narrative resource. Resources will be created looking at gender specific cause and effects for radicalisation.
JAN Trust has pioneered counter-extremism programmes, most notably our Web Guardians™ programme, which works to empower mothers against online radicalisation. We believe that the future is young people, especially young women, who have a vital role to play in countering extremism.
We are so excited for this new chapter at JAN Trust, please follow and support our work on social media and on our website www.anotherwayforward.org!
