Resolving Intra-Religious Conflicts

By engaging with the community through PDev II-supported radio broadcasts, it really assisted in peaceful elections. We were able to reinforce our capacity thanks to PDev II. The association was able to play a neutral role to resolve problems in the community. CERFI was responsible for resolving various intra-religious conflicts within the Muslim community. There was not much space for educated intellectual Muslims in Burkina Faso before so we see it as a place for moderate intellectual Muslims to come together and discuss ideas and social issues. There is now a better cohesion between Muslims. CERFI is a reference point now within the Muslim community.
