Women without Borders (WwB) has been implementing its ‘MotherSchools: Parenting for Peace’ Model around the world since 2012. This Model presents a grassroots-level intervention strategy that brings together concerned and affected mothers in an effort to empower and enable them to confront the threat of radicalisation in their homes and communities. MotherSchools strengthen the participants’ individual capacity, capability, and emotional literacy, and heightens their awareness of radical influences. MotherSchools also upgrade existing social services by providing local stakeholders in at-risk regions with the essential structures, tools, and skills to address and counteract extremist ideologies.

MotherSchools have engaged thousands of mothers across three continents since its inception in 2012. This film provides insights into MotherSchools experiences and features testimonials from the first MotherSchools in the United Kingdom, which brought together 42 women from the Bagladeshi and Pakistani communities of Luton.
