Project Details

The rise of identity-based conflict and violent extremism fueled by youth radicalization has come at the price of human life, displaced people, political instability and the loss of physical infrastructure, natural resources and social cohesion. It has hindered human and economic development. 

Targeting primarily the youth of Tanzania who constitute 60% of the population, the Vijana Na Amani peace campaign seeks to counter the negative trend of radicalization through education, sensitization and leadership and entrepreneurship capacity building.
