This Council was established in 2008 by religious leaders from the Christian, Protestant and Islamic faiths in Burundi. They found that the principles of URI were very relevant to their local work. They believe that being connected with an international organization will enable them to learn from others and build partnerships with like-minded organizations. Members focus on promoting inter-religious cooperation to bring about peace through reconciliation, social justice and sustainable development.
