Network begins Consortium Project in Kenya

The Network together with Muslims for Human Rights (MUHURI), Islamic Relief Kenya (IRK), The Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims (SUPKEM) and Tangaza University is implementing a project “Religious minorities in Kenya: Overcoming divides, respecting rights” (funded by the Norwegian Agency for Development). The objective of this project is to address the problems affecting the full enjoyment of rights by the Muslim minority and the African Traditional Religions (ATR) communities in Kenya, arising from mistrust and excessive repression by the State authorities, misunderstandings with other faith-communities, and limited knowledge of constitutional rights, including promotion of gender equality. The project particularly supports dialogue across faith groups, and between minority faith groups and state institutions, to positively influence the law and its implementation concerning minorities’ rights.
