Women Against Violence and Extremism (WAVE)

Awarded: June 2018

The Iraq Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of its new project, Women Against Violence and Extremism (WAVE). It will be a 12-month, ground-breaking project implemented in Ninawa, Anbar, and Salaheddin governorates with the goal of equipping women to build family and community resilience against violence and extremism and contribute to social peace in their communities. It will seek to build the capacities of women leaders to identify markers and indicators of radicalization and violence, teach skills to counter violent extremism within communities, and raise awareness and advocacy for women’s role as the first line of defense against extremism. The project is funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
