to cultural and religious differences
The All Congo Inter-Faiths Platform (ACIP) is a congregation made of 8 officially-recognized religious communities in the Democratic Republic of Congo and is open to other traditional religious groups. ACIP emerged as early as in 1992, during the Sovereign National Conference (CNS), a national gathering hosted by President Mobutu to bridge the national reconciliation. It was clear that
religious communities had to unite to help the country heal the wounds of dictatorship and build a united and prosperous country. The Platform played a major role during the transition to ensure that the road to historical elections was not blocked. Those efforts led to the first democratic elections in the country. As a group that promotes mutual understanding and a shared future between religious communities, ACIP believes in the power of religion to heal the wounds and reunite mankind.
All Congo Inter-Faiths Platform ACIP sees joining URI as an opportunity to strengthen the bonds of cooperation with other religious groups within the organization so that, together, all heal the wounds and build a world of peace. Members also see that they can help foreign religious groups understand ongoing issues in the DRC and contribute in bringing sustainable solutions to the people of DRC.
