The 26-month project, which began implementation in October 2016, targets the districts of Kilinochchi, Mullaitivu, Mannar, Puttalam, Nuwara Eliya, Galle, Matara and Ampara. It focuses on strengthening community networks mentored by religious leaders and engaging them in building consensus for a Transitional Justice process and helping communities evolve a pluralistic national identity. The project is based on strengthening inter religious people-to-people community engagement for reconciliation and social cohesion in Sri Lanka.
As part of the project, sports and arts session are conducted weekly by peace delegates in the eight districts to build understanding among different communities.
Other activities include Community Cohesion activities and Mitigatory Interventions. Mitigatory Interventions are community based activities aimed at addressing an inter religious or inter ethnic issue present or are brewing in a community and have the potential to lead to a conflagration in the future. They are identified by DIRC members and discussed during their meetings and a possible solution is devised to address the issue.
