Muslim and Christian women participate in peace seminar

MONROVIA – As part of ongoing efforts to sustain peace and stability in the country, more than 150 Christian and Muslim women have participated in a three-day reconciliation and peace-building seminar in Monrovia.

Held at the Sinkor headquarters of the Young Women Christian Association (YWCA), the seminar was also aimed at promoting good governance, justice and the rule of law in the country.

The weekend program was part of a series of similar peace-building and reconciliation programs being held nationwide.

Participants discussed a wide range of issues, including the need for networking and collaboration among them as it related to sustainable women’s contributions to peace-building and development in Liberia.

They also discussed the need for all Liberians to get involved in the rebuilding of the country regardless of their tribal, religious, ethnic, sectarian or other persuasions.

The seminar was held under the auspices of the Christian and Muslim Women of Liberia for Peace, established in 2003.

The group is largely credited for its outstanding engagement and work with other women in the areas of Peace-building, Counseling and Reconciliation throughout the country.
