Changing the Narrative

Beyond the Lines began in May 2017 as an initiative to change the narrative and raise awareness on violent extremism. It is an online platform that educates and empowers people to think, speak and act beyond the narratives of violent extremism. 

Beyond the Lines has a blog section for readers to interact with information at an informal and youth friendly mode. Through this section, I share stories that inspire and educate young people towards peace building and active citizenship. It has a library section for those who wish to find articles and books for their research on matters of security and human rights.

The greatest lesson I have learnt is that stories are a powerful way of making a difference and that there is no story too small to bring about peace or inspire change. The project is on going and continues to reach out to people from across the world.

That's a pretty violent image for a story about changing the narrative on violence.
