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:

  1. Improving inter-faith working relationships locally and nationally.
  2. 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: 

  1. Coaching and training faith leaders.
  2. Interreligious dialogue workshops.
  3. Specialist workshops.

Thread:
A women’s training on interfaith dialogue and rights of religious minorities in Kilifi has revealed perplexing conflicts facing the Kaya, an African Tradition Religion:

A) Intrafaith conflict;

This news item urges peaceful co-existence btn different religions, ostensibly to avoid conflict. Broadcasted in Giriama, a local language, the story says locals involved in one of RMP’s interreligious dialogue training are optimistic the program will end religious animosity.

We have had Training of Trainers (ToT) meeting before the rolling out of community interfaith training in Kilifi. There will be sessions creating awareness on religious minorities rights, too.

This baseline study was conducted to inform the implementation of the Norwegian Agency for Development-funded consortium project, “Religious minorities in Kenya: Overcoming divides, respecting rights”, (RMP). The project is led by Muslims for Human Rights (MUHURI) and implemented together with The Network for Religious and Traditional Peacemakers (NRTP), Islamic Relief Kenya (IRK), the Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims (SUPKEM) and Tangaza University College.
This handbook, a culmination of the efforts by five entities, will be used as a guide for trainers under this project: Religious minorities in Kenya: Overcoming divides, respecting rights. It emerges with sound principles that envisage the coming together of religious people, based on commonality and widely shared values. The intention is to set an environment of trust and a network of co-operation. This manual visualizes the training of forum
