Inter-religious Family Festival 2024

Motivated by the vision that Africa can become a fulcrum for uplifting shared values, sustainable development and building peace, many thousands of families and distinguished leaders will convene at the first edition of the Family Festival 2024 in Kampala, Uganda.

Participants will include religious leaders, cultural and traditional leaders, government leaders, civil servants, and international delegates as well as youth, parents, the private sector, civil society, academia, and development partners. Over 20,000 people including families are expected to attend the festival and the various pre-event activities.

Inspired by the ideal of One Family under God as championed by Dr. Hyun Jin Preston Moon, Africa’s tradition of Ubuntu and IRCU’s interreligious peace initiatives, the Festival affirms that all people, regardless of tribe, religion, and nationality, belong to the one human family, and are endowed by the Creator God with freedom and fundamental rights.  The festival will explore best practices in interfaith peacebuilding and highlight the power of deep-rooted African traditions of family and spiritual values to advance freedom and a vision of a twenty-first century African renaissance. 

The Family Festival is a collaborative initiative of civil society and governmental entities including the Inter-Religious Council of Uganda, Global Peace Foundation, the Government of Uganda and its key ministries, Parliament of Uganda, Private Sector Foundation Uganda, Family Peace Association, Uganda National Promoters Federation, Integrity Uganda, Uganda Musicians Association, and Global Peace Women.
