Believers Without Dichotomy Foundation (BELWIDIC)

Believers Without Dichotomy Foundation (BELWIDIC) works with young entertainers in Nigeria to promote peace and social cohesion among young people throughout the country.

Believers Without Dichotomy Foundation (BELWIDIC), was founded in 2013, with the aim of addressing the problems stemming from the differences that tend to separate people and to cause conflicts. Inspired by the Modus Vivendi idea and the desire to see a  world which is balanced, free of illogical ideologies and extremist ideas that causes violent conflicts.

Our vision is that all people are born different yet endowed with some certain level of reasoning to enable us co-exist harmoniously. Our mission is to deliver the teachings/knowledge that will awaken and encourage that reasoning in us.

Our key objectives are working with young entertainers in carrying out our work to create balance in our society and helping young people realize their worth in society and to work with them to end violence. We work with entertainers because the youths today are drawn to entertainments, and we work with youths because if they choose not to fight there won't be any war.
