Tajikistan, a country with much of its land uninhabitable, and bordering other countries that have high risks of radicalisation, has seen a rise in violent extremism since the end of its civil war in 1997. The country faces widespread poverty, high rates of un-employment, and restricted access to higher education, which puts youth at risk of radicalisation and recruitment by extremist groups. Women without Borders (WwB) sought to expand its cohesive network of Sisters Against Violent Extremism (SAVE) in 2012 by identifying 20 female community leaders in Tajikistan and convening Teamshaping workshops that spanned five days. The women learned from each other’s community-based work experience and expressed their commitment to preventing the spread of violent extremism in the country.
