We have carried out an extensive campaign to attack terrorism and extremism, spread peace and renounce violence in three provinces that have witnessed most of the violence and extremism - Sohag, Assiut and Minya. The project and the campaign focused on raising the awareness of young people in Egyptian universities about the dangers of terrorism and extremism and its impact on the local and international levels. We also contributed through direct communication activities in spreading the culture of peace, rejecting violence, accepting others, dialogue and citizenship. The project also reintegrated the children of detainees and their families with the community and spread a culture of peace between them and neighboring families, creating an environment that rejects terrorism to be viable.
During the project period we were able to achieve the following:
