Fellows Project : Developing Dialogue Skills Among Women and Youth in Nigeria
This project is inspired by an interreligious perspective of mutual respect and harmonious living among people of different cultural and religious backgrounds. Through a participative approach to the study of religion – lectures by scholars, discourses by believers, visits to places of religious importance, shared meals, observation of rituals and participation in festivals – the Fellowship
in Religious Experience in Bangalore (FIRE) calls upon religious values in order to educate, organise and mobilise participants on issues that will improve understanding of commonalities, differences and specificities among their traditions. The project stresses the reciprocal interactions and influences between religions and spiritual traditions and the need to promote understanding between them in order to challenge ignorance.
