Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to promote understanding and cooperation between people of different cultures and religious traditions. To empower youth and build their competencies to prepare them for real- world challenges and enhance their role in civil society building. To help our local community.

The story began in May 2001, when a group of vibrant youth established a youth initiative at The University of Jordan Alumni Club to improve graduates' lives and professional skills and help our local community. We believe that to achieve real peace, we should establish cooperation between governments, NGO's and people based on religious tolerance, respect and intercultural understanding. Therefore, we established Quested Peace in June 2003 as a non-profit group, locally rooted in our traditions and committed to helping our community and connecting our endeavors globally for the creation of a more peaceful world. In January 2004, Quested Peace joined URI as a Cooperation Circle. Our activities include: voluntary work and community service, capacity building, local and global interfaith dialogue, intercultural exchanges, social and recreational activities, and networking.

We dream of preparing the new generation (our future leaders ) for peace and justice.
