TAMEB works relentlessly to foster peace and harmony among people of different cultures and religions because we believe for there to be socio-economic growth and sustainable development in Nigeria, we have to rise and live above our cultural and religious differences. Like most parts of the world, Nigeria is afflicted with ethnic and religious conflicts and violence, which pose an imminent threat to the sovereignty of the country and the socio-economic wellbeing of the nation. The Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2030 agenda affirms that there can be no sustainable development without peace and no peace without development. Therefore, Nigeria is already experiencing economic paralysis and security threats to lives and properties, due to religious intolerance.
In addition, we work to advance the cause of youths and women because we are conscious of the fact that young people and women are the most affected by tribal and religious motivated conflicts and violence. Ignorance, misinformation and coersion have also fueled the restiveness of young people. Thereby, making them susceptible to exploitation for the propagation of conflicts, violence and extremism. The United Nations Resolutions 1325 and 2250 respectively affirms that the role of women and youths are key to achieving peace in the conflict and post-conflict process. Hence, we work to empower women and youths with the capacity and knowledge to play an active role in peacebuilding and nation development.
Therefore, our thematic areas of focus are as follows:
- Interfaith and Intercultural awareness and enlightenment
- Capacity Building and Skill Acquisition
- Peace and Conflict Resolution
- Community-based network
- Humanitarian Support
