Who We Are
The Fellowship of Christian Councils and Churches in West Africa (FECCIWA) is a regional community of national Christian councils and churches from thirteen countries. FECCIWA identifies and addresses the root causes of ongoing violent conflicts in West Africa and contributes to peace and security in the sub-region. FECCIWA supports church leaders in their efforts to develop strategies to mitigate hunger, poverty and injustice in West Africa. FECCIWA cooperates with national decision-makers to ensure that people can improve their lives and exercise an influence over decisions that affect them. FECCIWA promotes policies on good governance and human rights. FECCIWA is providing a morally respected prophetic voice that is helping to foster humanitarian attitudes in West Africa.
FECCIWA also provides a forum where members speak and act with a united voice for:
- Social change and justice
- Theological reflection
- Worshipping and working together
- Providing support and care for one another as the Body of Christ
- Learning from one another
- Fostering inter-religious dialogue.
