Official Mothers for Life Chapter Started in UK

On Monday November 21st 2016 one of our Mothers for Life – Nicola Benyahia – went public to tell the world about her story and how she lost her son to ISIS. In this extraordinary and multimedia BBC piece she also announced her new family counseling Project Families for Life, which is the first fully trained CVE family counseling program in the UK and an official chapter of our unique global Mothers for Life Network. Nicola was personally trained by our Director Daniel Koehler to conduct counseling in counter-radicalization and will spearhead our efforts to build strong and high quality deradicalization programs in the United Kingdom.
