Talk by Professor Tor Iorapuu, St. Thomas Chaplaincy & Diocesan Council of Dev&Peace

Charlotte Lockhart, CND

On March 8th, St. Thomas Chaplaincy and the Diocesan Council of Development and Peace hosted a talk by Professor Tor Iorapuu, Executive Director of Youth Adolescent Reflection and Action Centre (YARAC) in North-Central Nigeria. A Development and Peace partner, YARAC is actively involved in peace building among and between Christians and Muslims in a country with a decades-long history of violence between ethnic and religious groups. They also have programs to empower women, to encourage entrepreneurs, and to promote the need for ecological and social justice in their country. Professor Iorapuu credits much of YARAC's success, particularly in "planting trees of social cohesion" among a new generation of young Nigerians, to the aid of Development and Peace and its generous supporters. I appreciated being there for the presentation and found him to be one of the best speaker-visitors. Also enjoyed the discussion after the formal talk!
