Shanazi heros

Shanazi Heroes are the role models who dare to see, hear, and act to collectively create a more equal society, free from honor-related violence and oppression. Through education and mentorship, these heroes aim to empower young boys and girls living within honor-based contexts.

Our former student, Shakir is one of the ten heroes trained in human rights, children's rights, gender equality, and democracy to serve as positive role models among their peers.

These young men, aged 16 to 23, deliver talks at schools, youth centers, and other venues frequented by young people. The goal is to achieve an attitude shift among young men and women living in honor-bound contexts, ultimately aiming to reduce violence in the long run.
