Religious Minorities: Overcoming Divides, Respecting Rights
This two-year project seeks to overcome the human rights violations suffered by religious minorities and African Traditional Religions communities.
MUHURI is the lead partner for this project funded by Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad). Other implementers are Network for Religious and Traditional Peacemakers, Islamic Relief Kenya, Tangaza University College, and the Supreme Council of Kenya (Supkem). Operational areas are Mombasa, Kilifi, Kwale, Garissa, Mandera, and Nairobi.
The venture supports dialogue between minority faith groups and state institutions, which are intended to positively influence the implementation of laws concerning minorities’ rights.
The project’s outcomes include, among others:
- Improving inter-faith working relationships locally and nationally.
- Enhancing awareness of decision-makers and public audiences on the common ground between faiths and constitutional rights, and on the relevant best practices in promoting minorities’ rights at a local and national level.
Project activities are, among others:
- Coaching and training faith leaders.
- Interreligious dialogue workshops.
- Specialist workshops.
