Journey to a more healthy, inclusive, just and peaceful world

Peaceful, just and inclusive communities

Our Focus Areas

Peaceful, just and inclusive communities

Different faiths make it clear: we are all responsible for each other’s welfare. As human beings, we are not disconnected, operating without relation to one another. Each one of our traditions teaches that we have the responsibility of caring for each other. Drawing on the African concept of Ubuntu, “I am because you are, and because we are, therefore I am,” we promote solidarity with all our neighbours, no matter who they are and what they believe in.

 

Societies are growing increasingly unequal, limiting young people’s access to quality education and employment, and relegating many youths to the margins of society. We are appalled by the magnitude of social hostilities and conflicts involving religious and ethnic tensions.

 

Stigma and discrimination against fellow human beings go against the basic tenets of our faith. As people of faith, we affirm the worth, value and dignity of all human beings. We refuse to associate with those who attack, demean and ostracize others in the name of our faith. We uphold the conviction that all human beings must be respected as equals and their dignity should not be compromised. Human dignity is central to all our approaches in our families, communities and broader societies.

 

Faith to Action Network recognizes the value of collaboration among people of faith. Although some faith actors have sought to promote division, we resolve to champion interfaith collaboration. Our sacred texts underscore the importance of working together for the common good. We are confident that by sharing our resources and experiences with people of other faiths, we contribute to peaceful, just and inclusive societies.

Join us in advancing family health and well-being; women’s rights and gender justice; and peaceful, just and inclusive communities.

About us

We mobilize faith actors for interfaith dialogue and collaboration to advance family health and well-being; women’s rights and gender justice; and peaceful, just and inclusive communities, consistent with one’s faith.

As part of global commemoration of the World Inter harmony week, through the JISRA programme, our member Muhammadiyah brings together young people from different faith formations to act for the environment. Another example that religion is a great builder of bridges.

For Ahsan Hamidi an activist with Eco Bhinneka, the chance for people with various religious backgrounds to meet, discuss, and work together while caring for the environment allows clarity and progress where there are differences that have arisen on the basis of prejudice”. What is your story of inter faith harmony this week?

Share with us and we shall share it with the world.
