Over 5,000 community members, women, youth, and people of diverse ethnic and faith groups joined traditional rulers and elders in Mando, a pilot community for the One Family under God Campaign in Kaduna state, Nigeria, for the Mando Community Peace Festival. Global Peace Foundation Nigeria and supporting partners hosted the festival under the theme “Celebrating our Unity in Diversity” on May 20.

Bringing together Muslims and Christians from a great variety of tribal communities, the festival is part of the campaign’s ongoing effort to foster interreligious, ethnic and tribal cooperation. The One Family under God Campaign mediation efforts strive to educate faith leaders to create models of cooperative leadership to prevent identity-based conflict and the violence prevalent in Kaduna’s history.
