Kafanchan Peace Market - visibility

Project Organisation: 
Project is Active:

Following the post-election violence in April 2011 the  idea of rebuilding the razed market as a peace and reconciliation project emerged from discussions during our weekly UK-Nigeria online meetings. .

During the crisis the market was destroyed causing much hardship and loss of life to the local community. Many traders lost their livlihoods and their family's sole income. The concept is to bring together the Muslim and the Christianty communities who will work together to rebuild an improved Kafanchan Market.
