Countering Violent Extremism and Fostering Community Resilience

1. Counter Narrative:
Dispel the narratives of extremist groups that incite violence and provide alternative narratives.

2. Capacity Building:
Build social tolerance within communities exposed to messaging promoting violent extremism.

3. Preventative Outreach:
Provide positive alternatives to ordinary citizens – especially younger Pakistanis in KP and NMDs – susceptible to recruitment into violent extremism.
