KOINONIA Ecumenical Presence and Service
Mobilise ecumenical solidarity and provide services to historically and culturally vulnerable groups who are in the process of social and political emancipation, and promote the ecumenical movement and its libertarian values.
KOINONIA is an ecumenical organisation, founded in 1994 by former participants of the Centro Ecumênico de Documentação e Informação (Ecumenical Centre of Documentation and Information), an institution that operated between 1974 and 1994. This new entity was created within the framework of its Member Assembly, consisting of historical militants who fought for democracy and for the affirmation of the values of the Ecumenical Movement in Brazil. The goal of the new organisation, in continuity with the ecumenical tradition, was initially to provide services to religious communities, the social movement and the churches.
