Challenge

Balochistan is one of the main conflict zones in Pakistan. Locating near to the border of Afghanistan, everyone there has been affected by terrorism. The city is regularly rocked by suicide bomb attacks and the security situation remains desperate. Poverty and unemployment are high and the government is struggling to provide basic services and security. In this context, the message of radical violent groups such as the Taliban attracts many young Children.

Solution

We will provide Kids for Peace Book and intensive residential training to 100 young Kids where they learn to understand peace, resolve conflict, and recognize dangers of extremism. They are trained to teach at risk young Kids in their communities how to resist extremism. They then go out and first year, train 100 young children who are at risk of Taliban recruitment. This is through a combination of peer mentoring, Kids Groups and teaching. This counters Taliban recruitment and extremism at root

Long-Term Impact

If we can stop extremism before it begins, we can not only prevent extremist attacks but also counter extremism in society. By empowering Kids for Peace to resist extremism and enabling them to build a peaceful society, we can help them live safer lives now and in the future too. This project will help Kids for Peace and in turn enable their families, communities and future generations to live in a just peaceful world that should be free from violent conflict, and where their rights respected.
