RIID Project Promotes Trust Between Different

Phase Two of NPC’s Reconciling Inter-religious and Inter-ethnic Differences (RIID) project was completed, resulting in the strengthening of nine District Inter Religious Committees (DIRCs) in Matara, Jaffna, Mannar, Puttalam, Kandy, NuwaraEliya, Galle, Ampara and Batticaloa. They were capacitated to address different issues that could threaten inter-religious and inter-ethnic harmony in their districts, building on lessons learned during Phase I. The projected is funded by USAID through its SPICE project.

NPC’s expansion of its inter-religious engagement with the support of Misereor to promote reconciliation through the transitional justice process took it to Badulla to meet with community leaders of the area.
