From November 2016 through November 2017, CYD partnered again with Uganda Muslim Youth Development Forum (UMYDF), Kenya Muslim Youth Alliance (KMYA), Anti-Tribalism Movement (ATM) and the Civilizations Exchange and Cooperation Foundation (CECF),
a USA based organization to implement the East Africa Regional Credible Voices Exchange Program that themed on prevention of violent extremism. In this project, a total of 40 community leaders who comprised 10 from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Somalia visited all participating countries (except Somalia).
In August 2017, a total of 12 community leaders got additional opportunity to visit USA to increase their understanding and strengthen their regional collaboration roles against violent extremism. Similar program was conducted in 2015 between Imams of Uganda and Zanzibar.
