Changing Livelihoods through Interfaith in Kenya
Speaking about the changing interfaith situation in Kenya, Nyambura Mundia also shares her hopes regarding what interreligous engagement can achieve and help with.
The idea for United Religions Initiatives (URI) came to the Californian Episcopal Bishop William Swing in 1993, after an invitation by the United Nations to host a large interfaith service in San Francisco, marking the 50th anniversary of the signing of the UN Charter. It is a global grassroots interfaith network that cultivates peace and justice by engaging people to bridge religious and cultural differences and work together for the good of their communities and the world. They implement their mission through local and global initiatives that build the capacity of their more than 600 member groups and organizations, called «Cooperation Circles».
