Stories That #MPower | ReGap: Erasing Religious Gaps

Published on , by Kristelle Rizardo.

Our Generation MPower: Salaam Regional Workshops were a blast! From meeting with old and new friends in our Muslim Student Associations, to engaging with the issues that Moro youth deemed important, and getting to impart some of our own wisdom, we were all able to witness how the Moro, Mindanaoan, and Millennial youth put their ideas to action.

Here’s a look at some of the campaigns that really wowed us:

In a Filipino and Catholic University such as Xavier University- Ateneo De Cagayan, diversity is seen with the various religions prevailing in the said community. With this difference, it creates huge disparity and gap between students because of their existing conception of the other religions.

This problem has affected the interaction, communication and understanding of students in the university. Through a thorough workshop, we will be able to address the issue on the participants and give new insights, views and perspectives to them. Religion has become a decisive force in the contemporary world and instead of having it as a solution to conflicts, it was now portrayed as a source of problem

Since gaps between different religions are very timely nowadays it is just right for us to take a step and do something about it. We can’t just be hypocrites and complain all the time without doing something to make this a world a better place to live in, so furthering our online campaign would not just eventually help in reducing gaps between religions but also create better relationship among other and better environment.

The ultimate goal of the event is to address the focused issue which is religion gaps and lessen or reduce this gap among the students of Xavier University and allow the participant to be part of the campaign.
