THE CHRISTIAN – MOSLEM COMMUNITY SKILL AQUISITION INNITIATIVE
The Anglican Diocese of Jos has engaged the Muslim Community in Rayfield, Jos in an entrepreneural Development Scheme that has drawn over 90 muslim and christian women and youths in an extraordinary show of love and christian virtue.
This engagement is unique considering the bloodbath and animosity that has gripped Jos, the Plateau State Capital and surrounding towns for more than three years where Moslems Fulani miltia and sects attacked villages and towns killing and maiming men, women and childre and in repraisals, many moslems were killed. The Boko Haram Islamic sect has claimed responsibility for some of these attacks and many other acts of terror in Nigeria
While there is still mutual suspicion between the Moslems and Christians in Jos, the move to intergrate the two religious divides through self help community participatory projects and programmes by the Anglican Diocese of Jos is yielding results.
The Christian and Moslem women now interract freely. They eat together, learn together and work together.
