World Interfaith Harmony Week

The World Interfaith Harmony Week seeks to spread the message of harmony and tolerance among the followers of all the world’s religions, faiths and beliefs. It seeks to do this by promoting their common basis of “Love of God and Love of the Neighbor, or Love of the Good and Love of the Neighbor”. Its message invites everyone, excludes no one, and is purely voluntary.

From 1 – 7 February of each year, the World Interfaith Harmony Week provides a platform for interfaith groups and other groups of goodwill to show the world the thousands of events they organized and which often go unnoticed.  During the Harmony Week those groups are given the opportunity to become aware of each other, seeing others efforts and building ties.

Worship for WASH Interfaith Summit

The Global Interfaith Wash Alliance (GIWA) was launched during the 2013 United Nations General Assembly Meetings at UNICEF Headquarters in New York under sponsorship of USAID and the Government of the Netherlands.  GIWA’s vision is a watersecure world in which universal access to safe drinking water, improved sanitation and proper hygiene will be achieved by inspiring and equipping leaders to collaborate across faiths, nations, and populations for the
health and well-being of all.

From its Worship for WASH Summits to large-scale public events and beyond, leaders and communities join forces, and hands, to save lives to bring about a healthier, happier, more peaceful world. The last Worship for WASH Interfaith Summit was held in August 2016 in Ladakh.  The “Worship for WASH” GIWA-UNICEF Ladakh Summit initiated a dialogue on critical issues of WASH (Water, Sanitation and Health), specifically in the Ladakh region. The Summit discussed the inter-linkage of multiple issues of inequity, lack of access and other related issues in the region, with special focus on minority populations.
