Inter Faith Cooperation Forum
Support a regional inter-religious Asian movement for justice and transformation that focuses on marginalised communities, confront the roots of violence, promote justice in the economic, political, and social spheres.
Origins traced to the Consultation meeting on Interfaith Cooperation in Asia, which was held in Prapat, North Sumatera, Indonesia from 5-10 April 2003; This was jointly organised by Asia Pacific Alliance of YMCAs (APAY), Christian Conference of Asia (CCA), and Church Development Service (EED), Germany.
- School of Peace
The School of Peace (SOP) was an idea born out of the Interfaith Cooperation Forum. The first SOP was held in Bangalore, India in 2006. The purpose of the SOP is to encourage engagement between peoples of different faiths in Asia. This is done through bringing together approximately 20 young adults from conflict areas of Asia who share different faith perspectives. Through lectures, exposure visits, and interaction with one another, the participants were able to learn about other faiths, and the importance of living with one another in peace

This documentation center includes a database of regional resource persons who can serve as facilitators in interfaith justpeace meetings and activities
