Religions United for the Advancement of Communities and Humanity (RUACH) is based in Yaounde, Cameroon, and is committed to advocacy for the integration of all the religions of the world in order to achieve global peace, religious harmony, and spiritual development of humanity. The group is basically not connected to any religious institutions but was formed by free and independent individuals from different faiths who were wiling to come together, to merge their effort and energy to build peace in their society.
RUACH consists of members from various faiths expressions in Cameroon, including the Christian traditions (Protestant, Roman Catholic and some Greek Orthodox), Muslims traditions, Brahma Kumaris and others. Some of the activities carried out or planned by the organization include interreligious and interfaith programs, human rights advocacy projects, peace education, democracy and governance projects. RUACH intends to partner and collaborate with other local, national and international partners. RUACH was formed based on their experiences in various interfaith settings locally. For the future they plan to commemorate different UN international days related to the issues the CC is working on, including: peace building, democracy, human rights, women, etc. They also plan to implement a human rights educational and advocacy campaign across the country in order to mobilize faith and indigenous communities.
