"The exercise is beautifully designed to empower vulnerable youths with better alternative to violent extremism influence, and build their resilience to its appeal through active community development," he said.

He said the programme was supported by NERI as follow up to project executed in some red spots considering the level of youth’s vulnerability to Violent Extremism due to high rate of unemployment and lack of business opportunity.
