Kofi Annan Foundation: Preventing violent extremism in Uganda and Somalia

The Kofi Annan Foundation, with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, is expanding its youth-led activities in Uganda and Somalia to prevent violent extremism. The Foundation’s Extremely Together initiative, through its network of exceptional young leaders, aims to equip youth with the capacities to recognize extremist narratives and patterns and find adequate responses. “Over the next 12 months, committed young people from different backgrounds in Somalia and Uganda will be equipped to lead training and to mobilise others to act for peace,” says Maud Roure, Head of the Promoting Youth Leadership Programme at the Kofi Annan Foundation. “This is the first step in Extremely Together’s strategy to scale up its work and deepen its in-country engagement.
