About the initiative
The Interfaith Alliance for Safer Communities was established to empower faith leaders to work for the safety and security of our communities, tackling issues such as child sexual abuse, extremism and radicalization, and human trafficking.
We aim to facilitate the building of bridges between faiths, NGOs and experts in various domains. We are conscious of the importance of empowering faith leaders, both at the institutional and grass-root levels, with knowledge and to mobilize them to play an active role in community safety.
Our current themes are ‘Child Dignity in the Digital World’ and ‘Hate in our communities’
With support ranging from international workshops to an interfaith forum and affiliated events, as well as the participation of distinguished academic experts, business leaders and leaders of civil society, our program is based on 3 foundations:
Prevention / Protect & Care / Collaborate & Sharing.
The Interfaith Alliance is only possible with the help of our partners:
