We provide a forum for leaders and members of Muslim and Christian women’s faith organizations to come together in sincere and concrete dialogue

We enable Muslim and Christian women’s faith groups to work together in the peace-building process to address issues that are causing conflict.

We facilitate Muslim and Christian women’s faith organizations to work together to concretely address women’s common concerns..

We bring Muslim and Christian women, members of faith groups, together regularly to grow in understanding and friendship and to discuss diverse themes related to conflict, peace and women’s common concerns.

Welcome to Women Interfaith Council

Here in Northern Nigeria, Muslims and Christians often look on one another with distrust. The fact that violence and destruction are perpetuated here in the name of religion is too well known to us. As women of faith we must not allow this to continue.

Unless we face women’s concerns and confront the root cause of women’s poverty we will not effectively enable women to participate more fully in peace-building process; nor will we empower women, the members of our faith-groups, to better help build and shape democracy, justice and right in our country.

What We Do

Provide Conflict Transformation training to the leaders of women’s faith groups through workshops and resource materials. The training includes guidelines on how to ‘step-down’ the training received to the members of their faith groups.

Provide training and experience of Interfaith Peace building and Spirituality to the leaders of women’s faith groups through workshops and resource materials so that they in turn can transmit this training to the members of their faith groups.

Sensitize key stakeholders of women’s faith groups, including male religious, traditional and political leaders, about the need for interreligious dialogue and for women’s participation in the same.

Reach out to market women, youth groups, farmers and other grassroots groups to sensitize them about the need for us to collaborate with one another as people of faith..

Use the media to transmit a message of peace and to urge people of faith to peaceful coexistence and to dialogue.
