The 26/11 attacks in Mumbai traumatised the city’s population, deepened fears, and created a heightened sense of insecurity across the region. Recognising the pivotal role that schools can play in preventing violent extremism, Women without Borders (WwB) launched a campaign across India entitled ‘Schools Against Violent Extremism’ and embedded it in their growing network of Sisters Against Violent Extremism (SAVE network).

The campaign brought together students and teachers who were committed to ending violent extremism in their communities. The Delhi public school students are the first SAVE network school activists committed to playing a part in reclaiming ‘tomorrow’ from all senseless violence.

A film crew documented the project. Owing to the success of the campaign, the Indian authorities decided to show the resulting production in over one hundred schools across Lucknow, New Delhi, and Mumbai.
