This report presents the evaluation findings for the project “Leading the way to Peace – Youth Together for Social Cohesion”, funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the Kofi Annan Foundation and four co-applicants: the College of Youth Activism and Development (CYAAD) in Pakistan, the Kristiyano-Islam Peace Library (KRIS) in the Philippines, and the Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund (GCERF) and Rupantar in Bangladesh.

The project targeted urban areas in each country and was implemented from February 2020 to January 2022. The action’s overall aim was to enhance civil society organizations (CSOs) and youth capacities for youth-led prevention of violent extremism (PVE) through identification and comparison of different approaches and good practices to be shared and replicated in the region and beyond.
