Education

The harmful stereotypes that fuel tensions between religious groups are usually rooted in ignorance, and the desperation of poverty often acts as a catalyst for outbreaks of violence. Therefore, URI Cooperation Circles work to educate people in order to create safer, more peaceful communities.
