We took part in activities held by Jordan Interfaith Action CC at Theodor Schneller School for the less advantaged, implementing a set of exercises to promote peace through sports. Now Jadara Interfaith Action CC will be the first of its kind working in the north of Jordan. We are planning to hold several activities such as seminars, workshops, and conferences to promote interfaith and religious dialogue among local communities, whom we target because they are agents of effective change in the society.
Our purpose is to bring relief where there is human suffering.
Our Cooperation Circle helps people affected by militancy who are living in shelter camps around Jammu. We arrange basic necessities for the people living in the camps and mobilize people to be more sympathetic about the plight of displaced people.
Our purpose is to promote a culture of peace and interfaith harmony in Japan
The goal of the members of our council is to achieve understanding, respect, and harmony among followers of different religions and to see peaceful co-existence in the world. We use several mediums to share our vision and realize our goal; for example, to counter violent extremism, we have a TV talk show in Japan that promotes interreligious harmony. We have also published a book in Japanese on comparative religion.
Jordan Interfaith Action CC is the dialogue unit at the Youth Spirit Center (YSC).

This CC is a group of ladies who help their community by empowering women through socio-economic and cultural development. We help women to start and build their own business, secure job opportunities, and to take initiative and be creative. This year we traveled to Petra to encourage the women and orphans to contribute in Petra Voting. We held orientation workshops about health care. We secured vocational training for 30 orphans in cooperation with the National Program for Vocational Training to increase their Job opportunities. We held training workshops for physically challenged people to teach and train them on how to be positive and active in their community and how to face their obstacles. We also organized Ramadan charity campaigns.
Our purpose is to use the media as a medium to promote peace, harmony, and reconciliation among followers of different religions.
Some of the annual activities of our Cooperation Circle include celebrating International Day of Peace and organizing youth interfaith seminars. We have also hosted a peace conference in Azad Kashmir. The conference addressed terrorism and its effect in our society. All of the speakers for this event passed resolutions to declare an end to violent jihad. The members of Journalists Information Bureau Pakistan are also dedicated to distributing relief packages in Swat, Bonair, and Dee.
Joy Foundation has been working with women, youth and children for a long time. They have established women and youth groups addressing community needs, but also works with an interfaith approach with different religions. Joy Foundation has a trained theater group and organizes Iftar parties for Eid every year to increase understanding of Muslim traditions.
Using media and educational tools, we seek to raise awareness and expose Israelis, Palestinian, broader Arab and American audiences to non-violent civic peacebuilders from both sides of the conflict who are working together to foster understanding and trust. Through education we seek to inspire those who are not yet involved to explore and take part in the range of sectors in which conflict resolution work is happening.
We are currently re- conceptualizing and redesigning our website to include new areas of functionality, as well as a Learning Center, a Media Center, a Press Section, a revamped Homepage and What You can Do section. Our aim is to make all of our media as accessible as possible to journalists, educators and community leaders in order to broaden awareness about Israeli and Palestinian peace workers. Just Vision is also producing a timely and powerful new film, Buldrus Has a Hammer (working title): A Palestinian Community organizer unites all Palestinian Political factions along with Israelis in a Gandhian struggle to save his village, unleashing a non violent movement that is gaining ground today. Finally, new educational and training initiatives are also underway. In the U.S., we are focusing our outreach on four target cities with large concentration of Arab, Jewish and Muslim communities (Washington DC, Los Angeles, Chicago and Detroit) where we are introducing facilitators, teachers, youth organizers and interfaith leaders to our materials, including our classroom and community screening guides, website and films. We will continue to conduct outreach to ensure that Encounter Point and an accompanying Hebrew Classroom Screening Guide are incorporated into Israeli classrooms, community centers and extra-curricular youth programming. Likewise, we will continue to bring Encounter Point and accompanying Arabic Screening Guide to villages, refugee camps and community centers in Palestinian Society.
