Ivoirian religious leaders to promote peaceful elections

USAID/OTI organized a workshop for religious leaders in Grand Bassam on May 18-22, 2015 with the Forum National des Confessions Religieuses de Côte d’Ivoire (FNCR-CI).  The workshop aims to ensure that religious leaders exert their influence in a positive manner during the upcoming election period. Following the workshop, FNCR-CI members will organize an OTI-sponsored caravan to travel to various communities in and around Abidjan as well as in the western part of the country.  The caravan will encourage religious leaders to engage with peers and congregations in their respective communities and promote a peaceful election.
