51 Cooperation Circles

Label: Purpose & Activities

URI SEAPac’s Cooperation Circles work to provide environmental education, empower communities through conflict mediation, develop vocational training, and create the next generation of young leaders.

Responding to the rise in Muslim immigration in historically Catholic Manila, and the corresponding rise in conflict, URI SEAPac has developed a model program, The Priest-Imam Forum, which creates a path for continued dialogue that helps to bridge the gap between cultures. In Mindanao, URI CCs are helping disenfranchised Muslim communities build more productive relationships with the military and government.

THE URI SOUTHEAST ASIA AND THE PACIFIC SUPPORT TEAM

May peace prevail in the Southeast Asia and the Pacific Region.
