Contribute to the collective shaping of attitudes needed to advance global prosperity and justice.


From the earliest days of the Baha’i Faith in the mid-1800s, Baha’is have contributed to processes of global governance. With the founding of the League of Nations, Baha'is began to establish more formal relations with international organizations. Over the past 70 years, Baha’is have supported and contributed to UN efforts in the areas of social and sustainable development, gender equality, human rights, and UN reform, among others. In 18 April 1948 Nine National Spiritual Assemblies of the Baha'i's of the world were recognized collectively as an International NGO under the title Baha'i International Community for the purpose of maintaining a relationship with the UN.
