A Nigerian nonprofit has developed a peacebuilding project to promote interreligious, cultural and languages dialogues for youth between 18-29 years.


The project’s central theme: “Promoting Peace through Languages and Interfaith Events” is designed to bring at least 200 youth in Lagos and Abuja, Nigeria, over six months (February-May and June-September) for a unique dialogue series on languages, culture and interfaith interactions.


It organisers, The Centre for Equality and Equity, see the initiative as an opportunity to promote peace and the inclusion of youth, especially, young women, as peacemakers in communities. The participants will receive instructions in intermediate language learning and peacebuilding tools to foster mutual understanding among the various religions and cultural groups in Nigeria. Youth can register through the project’s website at www.bridgeng.org or by email: info@ceqeq.org.


This initiative is exclusively funded under the small grants projects of The International Dialogue Centre (KAICIID), Vienna, Austria, an intergovernmental organization whose mandate is to promote the use of dialogue globally to prevent and resolve conflict to enhance understanding and cooperation.
