Background

Rupantar is a local not-for-profit Development Organization established in 1992. It has been working in the area of Prevention of Violent Extremism (PVE) since 2015. In 2016, Rupantar received funding from the Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund (GCERF) to initiate a project called “Preventing Extremism through Active Community Engagement (PEACE) Consortium.”

The first phase of the project was implemented during 2016-2019 in Satkhira and Chapai-Nawabganj districts. The second phase of the project started in late 2019 and, in addition to the above geographical areas, it also covers Khulna, Rajshahi city corporation, and Dhaka.

The project supports initiatives that promote youth awareness of risks and threats of violent extremism and encourages them to become active agents of change on PVE. The project is implemented in consortium with 5 organizations.

A vital component of this project is strengthening the resilience of educated youth against radicalization to violent extremism in Dhaka, which is the focus of this Call for EoI.
