Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to promote enduring daily interfaith cooperation, to end religiously motivated violence and to create cultures of peace, justice and healing for the Earth and all living beings.

We are a community-run, community-based, non-profit and non-partisan youth group established in 2001. Our group was initiated by young people from different religions. Our major goal is to mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS in our society. We are implementing a youth-to-youth project with funding from the Global Aids Interfaith Alliance. The project targets people aged 14- 30 years old and focuses on behavioural change. We have established 11 youth clubs and trained 60 peer educators who share the information with fellow young people in their particular areas. We have distributed 1,000 T-shirts advocating voluntary counseling and testing. Our other activities include awareness campaign meetings, the establishment of youth clubs, peer education training, and counseling.

Our dream is to see peace, justice and healing for the earth and all living beings from different religions.
