Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to empower interfaith communities through the promotion of peace harmony and healing of the earth.

Sharing in the vision of the URI, Kalinaw (meaning "peace" in the Cebuano language) CC members deepen their knowledge and understanding of the various faiths through rituals and celebrations and by promoting health and and well-being with spiritual awareness. With regular monthly meetings, the CC engages in advocacy work for environmental concerns and establishes relationships with other organizations and like-minded faith groups. The CC also organizes interfaith concerts, like the Celebration of Life and International Day of Peace celebrations at the University of Cebu campus, and promotes Peace and Good Citizenship Month which started in September 2009. The CC also focuses on gender empowerment, poverty alleviation, values education, livelihood program and participative governance. Together with the local government, Kalinaw CC launched an Interfaith Sector in Cebu, and collaborated with the Office of Muslim Affairs on different programs like the Koran Reading Contest, etc.

Our dream is to dialogue to create love and unity among diverse faiths, especially in the Visayas and Mindanao Philippines.
