On August 8, 2019, we held the inauguration of the International Asociation for Peace and Development (IAPD) in Benin in Cotonou. There were 90 participants including 55 religious leaders. Several religious congregations including the Catholic Church, Islam, the Methodist Protestant Church of Benin, the Church of Celestial Christianity, the Assembly of God, the Church of Cherubim and Seraphim, the Orthodox Church and many others.
The launch of IAPD is the culmination of a series of seminars and blessings for Religious Leaders in all departments of Benin. It is also a strategic step for the success of the 2 major events in Benin in 2019, namely the African Summit and the National Blessing.
The Religious Leaders were more than enthusiastic and committed to working with the IAPD. They are determined to work for the success of the two events mentioned above.
