Interfaith and Grassroots Initiatives

Promotion of Interfaith dialogue at the grassroots level serves as an instrument to promote sustainable livelihoods and community cohesiveness or unity, thus, becoming the basis of civil society to promote the democratization process.

Harmony, cooperation and understanding are enhanced by exchanges between people (e.g. youth, students, teachers, religious leaders, academics) of different faiths, within and between countries, and at the grassroots communal levels. Such exchanges deepen inter-cultural understanding, and promote community values.

Interfaith activities help communities to learn more about each other through informal settings such as community gatherings, festivals, sporting events or projects.

Grassroots interfaith cooperation lays a powerful foundation for aid and assistance in critical community concerns in our region such as poverty, HIV, human rights, environmental issues and natural disasters.
