We believe in Human Rights and Work for Dignity for all
With special knowledge of religious freedom and the role of religion in society, we arrange events and workshops to learn from each other’s differences and advocate for a better world. We also distribute funds from Sida to several of our member organisations’ development cooperation work with local partners in over 50 countries.
