Strengthening relations between Christians and Muslims in Africa

Number: 100.1200

The Programme for Christian-Muslim Relations in Africa (PROCMURA), a partner organisation of Mission 21, is dedicated to the peaceful coexistence of the two religious communities. PROCMURA champions the right to the free and unimpeded practice of religion, and it advocates mutual tolerance. Wherever tensions or disputes arise between Christian and Muslim communities in Africa, PROCMURA is on hand to mediate and promote peace. Its general programme is supplemented by special programmes for women and young people. Mission 21 supports PROCMURA's work in its own key countries and by awarding scholarships for the training of specialists.
