In 2004, ARLPI became the first African institution to ever receive the Niwano Peace Award for her contributions towards promoting unity and her commitment to finding peaceful ways to end the northern Uganda conflict.
Upon receiving the prize, ARLPI vowed to use the monies awarded to create the first of it's kind--an 'Interfaith Centre for Peace' in Gulu. In an effort to promote peace in Uganda, Africa and the world at large, the centre is to be dedicated for training in peace education, research, and advocacy for non-violent conflict resolution and other peace related issues.
The centre will consist of an administration block, a hotel and catering wing, as well as a theater which will house hundreds.
