The Uganda Youth Interfaith Network (UYIN) which is youth arm of the Inter-Religious Council of Uganda is embarking on working with Refugee and host community youth with a pilot engagement in Rwamwanja settlement. UYIN’s engagement is as a result of the concern around refugee relations with host communities. UYIN is equally concerned about the growing effects of climate change and the impact of refugees on the environment within the settlement area. UYIN has targeted Rwamwanja Refugee Settlement for a 6 months pilot phase for its engagement code-named The Building Bridges Initiative (BBI). Should the pilot be successful, UYIN intends to continue working in Rwamwanja but also extend its services to other settlements as well.

University guild leaders and faith youth leaders in Eastern Uganda have gathered at Pretoria Hotel in Mbale to discuss the role of youth in realizing the Religious Leaders' commitment to Nation Building. The workshop is organised by Uganda Youth Interfaith Network. Among the plenary discussants are Bishop Joshua Lwere from NAPECU, Can. Justice James Ogoola of TEFU and Mr. Joshua Kitakule of IRCU.

Inter-Religious Council of Uganda

UWONET meets with the Inter-Religious Council of Uganda(IRCU) leadership to review the common Agreed Agenda on the Marriage Bill and discuss the way forward.

The review of the Marriage Bill was sparked off by the divergent views on the contentious clauses therein. An example of that is the name of the Bill, the property issues among others.

The purpose of the Marriage Bill is to reform and consolidate the law relating to marriage and give effect to Article 31(I) of the Constitution of Uganda, which guarantees women’s equal rights upon, during and after marriage and provides for the protection of the rights of widows and widowers to inherit the property of their deceased spouses (11). It also sets the legal age for marriage at eighteen for both men and women.

Religious leaders under the IRCU fraternity and the Marriage coalition are working together to narrow the gaps in the Agreed Common Agenda.

[12/13/18]   A merry Christmas and happy new year 2019 to all of us.

The Uganda Youth Interfaith Network held the November #InterfaithYouthDialogue on Thursday November 29, 2018. The two key issues discussed were: Youth involvement in the forth coming #NationalDialogueProcess and addressing Sexual Gender Based Violence as youth. The youth were challenged to strategically position themselves as 1/3 of the representatives in the National Dialogue will be young people. Secondly, the youth committed to address their dress code and act as ambassadors against Sexual Gender Based Violence.

Our condolences go out to the families of the #BoatCruiseAccident that happened on Lake Victoria on 24 November 2018.

It's happening this Thursday 30. 08. 2018. Our very first Inter faith youth dialogue. All at the Inter Religious Council of Uganda offices in Mengo. Come let us reason together as young people.

The Uganda Youth Interfaith Network held a successful exchange meeting with youth across Africa this morning. They have appreciated the work by UYIN and pledged continuous support to our inter youth network.

The Uganda Youth Inter-Faith Network held a planning meeting on Monday 19th March 2017. Top on agenda was having Uganda’s youth empowered with relevant skills for development. The youths also intend to hold routine dialogue on topics of national importance. To realize this, we, should as youth pick interest in each other’s religious beliefs to ease networking. As youths, let’s put to good use the social media platforms to discuss, share and network for own betterment.

The youths from all IRCU's member institutions, were part of the delegation that graced the Dialogue to End Violence against children, at Imperial Royale Hotel Kampala on 15/03/2018.

Kasumba: Are these killings a result of a failure of the pulpit?

Sheikh: No. People have no hope, employment and wealth. Government should involve religious leaders in dialogues so that we can come up with solutions as to why murders are multiple. #NBSMorningBreeze

Some of the pictures from our meeting with Jessica Nalwoga, the Business Livelihoods, Environment and Governance manager at the Inter-Religious Council of Uganda. 2017 is going to be the year of the youth.

Exodus 20:13: THERE’S MORE TO MURDER THAN TAKING A LIFE
I. MURDER INTRUDES INTO GOD’S TERRITORY
God controls man’s entrance into life and his exit from life - No man has the right to deliberately and intentionally end the life of another. God is the giver of human life and He alone must be the taker of human life. When we take it upon ourselves to take the life of another, we have placed ourselves in the place of God. We have tried to assume His position and power. We have tried to step into an area in which we have absolutely no business.
II. MURDER INVOLVES THE ELEMENT OF JUSTICE - Murder carries with it a penalty. In Matt. 5:21-22. Jesus states that murders will be punished. Some have gotten away with murder. They will, however, face God one day and He will render perfect justice - Rev. 20:11-15.
Murder is more than an act of the flesh, it is an attitude of the heart.
How do we insulate ourselves against committing murder?
The solution is simple. All we need do is practice God’s plan for unconditional love, Matt. 33:37-39, and absolute forgiveness of others, Eph. 4:32. If there has been a murderous spirit in your heart, that needs to be repented of right now. Whoever you are angry at needs to be forgiven and that anger released. It is far better to suffer some injury than to be guilty of murder, even if it is only hurting you.
May the soul of the slain former Assistant Inspector General of Police, Andrew Felix Kaweesi rest in eternal peace.
