Youth from Tanzania and the U.S. are confronted with the problem of terrorism. Both countries have experienced attacks by al-Qaeda and adherents and youth in both countries are exposed to the threat via the media and beyond.
To prevent the problem of terrorism, policy makers and development practitioners have been exploring various ways to meaningfully mitigate the threat. Toward this end, the Principals at Human Security Partners (HSP) in Washington, D.C. and Center for Youth Dialogue (CYD) in Zanzibar, Tanzania have been in conversation with school officials from of E. L.
Haynes High School in Washington, D.C. and SOS Hermann Gmeiner School in Zanzibar, Tanzania on running a four to five week pilot program, whereby youth from both countries can learn about each other, the threat of terrorism, and co-construct ideas and projects that address challenges in their respective local communities.
