WHO WE ARE
The Bridge Peace Project is a community-led dialogue on peace, justice, and intercultural relations.
The core objective of this initiative by The Centre for Equality and Equity is to facilitate peaceful cooperation, exchanges and understanding - especially for youth in Nigerian local communities - using the vehicles of tolerance, cultural orientation, sport, and the arts. This project specially seeks to promote the inclusion of women and young girls in communities, especially in low-income communities who will receive language learning and peace-building tools.
Many sections of Nigerian communities are gradually returning to fragility as was the case before the last major civil war in the late 1960's-70's. There is a need to foster a broad network of young people in the 36 states in Nigeria who will serve as peace ambassadors by leveraging on the strengths/positives of their diverse cultures, values, and beliefs. It is our bold attempt to encourage young people of different cultures and faiths speaking as one to local and national audiences - for tolerance and mutual cooperation in a nation of nearly 200 million citizens.
Our partners include local, corporate, faith, security and global organisations.
