Our Approach

Hedayah prioritizes our expertise in disengagement, deradicalization and reintegration of individuals who are either in the process of radicalization, or convicted and imprisoned, or released from prison. Current CVE efforts frequently aim to combine different elements of rehabilitation and reintegration programs to ensure that these individuals reject violence and become constructive members of their communities.

Accordingly, we continue to share our good practices and conduct workshops with countries where CVE actors seek to enhance their education and CVE strategies. Furthermore, Hedayah now aims to expand its CVE and Education Program through tailored capacity building activities for a variety of education practitioners throughout a number of regions. We also seek to investigate which approaches are most successful in creating impact on the ground through a focus on robust monitoring and evaluation of this program.a
