The ARLPI is an organization in northern Uganda in which the members of different religions, including Islam and Christianity (Catholic, Orthodox, and Anglican), work together. Since its establishment in 1998, it has acted non-violently to end armed conflict, to nurture human resources for the task of creating peace, and to provide assistance to war victims through the work of over 400 volunteers, including its core membership of religious leaders, as well as individual staff members, peace committees in various districts, and peace supporters.
