Eurasia Foundation of Central Asia - Tajikistan (hereinafter - EFCA-Tajikistan) is a public organization founded in the Republic of Tajikistan in 2009. The Eurasia Foundation of Central Asia (EFCA) – Tajikistan is committed to activating the potential of civil society and its institutions to contribute to national and regional development in the areas of climate change and rural resilience, gender equality and women's empowerment, countering extremism and terrorism and conflict prevention, civil society development and good governance, youth empowerment and education, rule of law and anti-corruption.

Prevention of violent extremism is seen as a comprehensive whole of government and whole of society effort, guided by principles of conflict-prevention and gender-sensitivity, and based on the understanding that violent extremism refers to beliefs and actions of people who support or use violence to achieve ideological, religious or political goals. PVE, hence, is focused on impacting the factors conducive to processes which can lead to violent extremism by civil means. It is understood as an approach that is to be distinguished from counter terrorism (CT) and countering violent extremism (CVE), which both focus primarily on the use of military or law enforcement means to combat, deny and deter acts of violent extremism. At the same time, the preventive approach is closely interlinked with CT and CVE, with both definitions and actual practice overlapping at times.
EFCA - Tajikistan is implementing project “Educational Measures on Preventing Violent Extremism Targeting Children and Youth in Selected Districts in Tajikistan” under the regional GIZ programme “Preventing Violent Extremism in Central Asia (PREVECA)”, financed by the German Foreign Office.
Theory of change
The basic assumption is that there is a lack of knowledge and awareness about the risks and potential consequences of intolerance, of a culture of disrespect and of discrimination for their own life, their family, their broader social environment and for the whole country among average Tajik children and youth. This lack of knowledge and understanding, together with specific needs of this age group such as seeking for adventure, identity and new experiences, and an often intolerant socio-cultural environment, makes them generally less aware and resilient against the lure of ideologies and opinions, which discriminate against people because of their gender, race, religious affiliation, looks, habits, etc.
This general socio-cultural climate forms a conducive, though not necessary condition for radicalization processes in society as a whole and among children and youth in particular.
Video clips conveying values such as tolerance, inclusivity, solidarity and mutual respect aim to change the general socio-cultural climate and thereby reduce the vulnerability to extremist messages building on acceptance of intolerance, disrespect and discrimination.
Goals and objectives
The dissemination of video clips aims to change the socio-cultural climate in general and socio-cultural values of children and youth in particular in favor of values of tolerance, mutual respect and inclusivity and thereby help reduce the vulnerability to extremist messages building on intolerance, disrespect and discrimination.
Children and youth in Tajikistan have an improved knowledge and understanding about the risks and potential consequences of intolerance, disrespect and discrimination.
Children and youth in Tajikistan have an improved understanding of what they can contribute to foster tolerance, mutual respect and inclusivity.
Children and youth in Tajikistan have an improved capacity to identify extremist content and a higher resilience against extremist messages.
The video clips target children and youth aged 10-16 all over Tajikistan.
