Featured Story: 2,000+ women engaged in peacebuilding

Ruth Abner is a Christian. Zuwaira Alhassan is a Muslim. At an OMNIA’s Interfaith Peacemaker Training they did a one-on-one conversation and decided that they need to get other Muslim and Christian women in their village to pair up and do one-on-ones. Eleven pairs of Muslim and Christian women came together to for an IP Team. Within a year, they numbered 120. They brought together over 2000 women to stop election-related violence in their community. Through their leadership, women throughout the community are teaching their sons and daughters how to build power together.
