For the first time, Women without Borders held a joint MotherSchools graduation ceremony in Austria. The class of 2019–WwB’s fifth generation of MotherSchools in Austria since 2015–brought together Chechen, Somali, Iraqi, Syrian, Yemeni, and Palestinian graduates in the Tyrolian mountain capital of Innsbruck. Under the metaphoric title ‘breaking through the clouds’, this alpine get-together saw the mothers unite across cultures and bond over their shared experiences as Parenting for Peace graduates and common mission to safeguard their homes and communities from the threat of toxic ideologies. The project was made possible with the generous support of Austria’s Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration, and Foreign Affairs.
