A Seminar to bring religious leaders together to enter into a dialogue about the situation faced by the marginalized in West Africa.
From 9:00am until 5:00pm
At M’Rode Hotel
Interfaith Diversity Network of West AfricaThe current state of human rights in West Africa is not good. This indicates that countries in West Africa may not achieve the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, including the theme of ‘leaving no one behind.’ Many marginalized people, face legal challenges and religious fundamentalism is on the rise in the region. Founded in 2016, Interfaith Diversity Network of West Africa is a regional network of faith based individuals, and activists working for inclusion of diverse persons to create a world governed by respect and dignity. We seek a day where all persons irrespective of religious beliefs become great allies in the quest for a safe and free society for all humans. Guided by our belief in the respect for all humans, we are building bridges. The aim of the seminar is • To bring religious leaders together to enter into a dialogue about the situation faced by the marginalized in our communities in Togo and the rest of West Africa. • To provide training for religious leaders on how best to support persons who are discriminated against and to explore how to address human rights and advocacy in West Africa. • To focus on regional needs and priorities to help those in conflict because of diversity.
