At IRN, our approach towards peacebuilding focuses on strengthening the sustainability of peace so as to reduce lapsing or relapsing into violence and conflict. We never underestimate the power of bringing people together to actualize peace and repair broken relationships. We organize seminars, peace talk shows, peace dialogues, and support campaigns that are targeted towards promoting peaceful coexistence.
As a result of our peacebuilding activities, Christians and Muslims Uniform Youth groups in Mubi help each other, especially in securing religious places of worship. You can easily notice member(s) of the Muslim Group “Agaji” guarding a Church, and also member(s) of the Christian group “Boys Brigade” guarding a Mosque. This was a fulfillment of a challenge thrown to the both religions during IRN’s Peace Seminar. Respect and understanding between
the Christians and Muslims also became apparent unlike during the crisis era in Mubi. Both religions now live in an increased unity and peace.
