A United Religions Initiative (URI) CC, Dialogue, Reconciliation and Peace Centre (DREP), in conjunction with the Catholic Caritas Foundation of Nigeria (Caritas Nigeria) and the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development (CAFOD), with support from the European Union, hosted a 2-Day Training on Promoting Cultural and Religious Tolerance from July 30-31, 2019, in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria. This is part of a four-year project on Actions for Cultural and Religious Pluralism in Nigeria and Niger code-named ZAMAN TARE.

The aim of the project is to strengthen multicultural and religious tolerance through various initiatives that include engaging the services and collaboration of academic and research institutes, religious and community leaders, students, youth groups, civil society organizations, State Actors, artists, media actors and representatives of women groups.

URI West Africa actively participated in this 2-Day Training. At the end of the training, URI West Africa was mandated to provide technical support to Group Two (2), to "Advocate for the inclusion of Cultural Groups from outside Plateau State cultural Carnival". This assignment is to be conducted and completed between the 1st of August to the 31st of December, 2019.
