Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to work for peace building, tolerance and interfaith harmony around the principles of social justice, acceptance, diversity and socio-cultural pluralism of all communities. To engage youth and promote interfaith actions through dialogues and consultations.

Most of the the group members have been working to promote interfaith harmony, human rights, women's empowerment and peace since 2002 being the members of New youth and a few other organizations. As the political situation is getting worse day by day we felt that there should be a group that works on a local, national and international level. ROOTS has developed for the same purpose of promoting interfaith harmony among the tribes in Quetta, Balochistan. During the last six months of New Youth we conducted several educational and awareness raising programs for students, out of school adolescents and other young people regarding their issues, interfaith harmony, peace and provision of new opportunities where they can get together and share their ideas with each other.

We plan to: network with different religious leaders; organize trainings on identity , cultural practices and our role in peace building; celebrate Peace Week in Quetta; celebrate different occasions of different faiths such as Eid-e-Nowroz, Easter and prayers; Holi , facilitate community discussions through meetings with different groups; conduct Youth exchange programs; conduct Seminars on Peace and Harmony; and conduct dialogue with religious leaders regarding Peace and harmony.

Our dream is a world free of ethnic discrimination and religious intolerance.
