CAPA in collaboration with African Council of Religious Leaders (ACRL), Faith to Action Network (F2A) and in association with All Africa Council of Churches will implement this 4 year project effective April 2018.

 

The overall objective of CRID is to promote cultural diversity and respect for equal dignity of all people in Burundi, Egypt, Kenya, South Sudan, Tanzania and Ugandathrough interfaith dialogue and cooperation. Its specific objective is to enhance understanding, tolerance and respect for cultural and religious diversity among 14,400 youth at risk of radicalization at target countries.
