Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to establish a neutral platform wherein people of different religions and faith groups can come together to engage in constructive dialogue and make religions a healing force in Ethiopia and in the world.

The Interfaith Peace-building Initiative (IPI) is a peace organization which has been working actively since 2003 to promote interfaith cooperation, a culture of peace, harmony, constructive dialogue and the Golden Rule. It is a nongovernmental peace organization legally registered with the Ministry of Justice in Ethiopia. IPI was established by concerned citizens from different religions here in Ethiopia that strongly believe that religions should play an important role in building trust and promoting a culture of peace, healing and reconciliation.

Our dream is to bring together peoples of various faiths in tolerance, mutual understanding, appreciation and collaboraton for peace, including protecting nature.
