The first assignment we embarked upon was several advocacy visits to all the major stakeholders on the Plateau starting with Youths in volatile communities popularly known as ‘flash points’ or ‘no go areas’ in both Christian and Muslim communities; opening dialogues and engaging them to shun all forms of violence and seek peace.
Then Christian and Muslim Religious leaders (CAN Chairman & Chief Imam) were tasked with the responsibility of ensuring their leaders and followers refrain from provocative preaching and also to use their offices to appeal to all to eschew violence and embrace peace.
Security agencies were not left behind in the quest for peace and the involvement of women in Peace processes. These included the Police Commissioner, State Task Force Commanders, General Officer Commanding Rukuba Barracks and Director SSS.
WOWWI carried its international advocacy to the UN Geneva, UN New York, Vienna in Austria, USIP and Inclusive Security , USA and Halifax in Canada. WOWWI presented papers or talked about its work through our Executive Director, Pastor Esther Ibanga.
