Faiths Together Uganda Cooperation Circle (CC) is located in Seeta-Mukono, Uganda. They primarily engage youth from Muslim, Pentecostal, Anglican, SDA, African Spiritual, and Orthodox communities. Faiths Together Uganda is actively working to heal fragile communal relations in the face of recent ethnic and religious violence and the polarization that swept their country and region. They use songs and dances to bring members of different cultures and religions together, in hopes to pass on the message of religious tolerance. Their main programs include interfaith-intercultural clubs on school campuses and organizing an intercultural performance troupe. Faiths Together Uganda has helped many of their youth participants forge strong relationships across cultural and religious lines through collaborative action and dialogue.

Every Voice – The Drum

The voice of the drum is heard as the heartbeat of URI. From URI’s first planning meetings to the current work of Cooperation Circles, the voice of the drum has been revered as a way to heal, to teach to call forth, and to make peace.
