Faith and community based resources to promote inter-religious, inter-cultural, and inter-generational and gender diversity, understanding and tolerance.
The Communities Richer in Diversity (CRID) project is a European Union funded project implemented by a consortium of faith organisations with networks across Africa. Through CRID, the implementing partners intend to leverage on the influence of faith leaders and institutions to promote cultural diversity and respect for equal dignity of al men and women. The organisations implementing CRID are: the Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa (CAPA), the African Council of Religious Leaders – Religions forPeace (ACRL-RfP), Faith to Action Network (F2A) and All African Conference of Churches (AACC). The project is implemented in six countries namely; Burundi, Egypt, Kenya, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda.
The project intends to scale-up interfaith and intercultural dialogue interventions to enhance the understanding, tolerance and respect for cultural and religious diversity among 12,200 young men and 12,200 young women at the risk of radicalization.
