Ms. Deepika Singh, Deputy Secretary General of Religions for Peace International presented to the partners and FBOs the historical timeline of the Faith for Positive Change for Children, Families and Communities (FPCC) during the Five-year Stocktaking and Partnership Review Forum on January 16, 2024.
Ms. Deepika traces the long standing partnership between Religions for Peace and Unicef in advocating and working for the rights and welfare of children. She emphasized that the multi-faith collaboration, which is the very nature of Religions for Peace, bringing together different religions to work for common action, has been the key element in sustaining the partnership for a high positive impact to the wellbeing of children and adolescent girls.
Religions for Peace is committed to leading efforts to advance effective multi-religious cooperation for peace on global, regional, national and local levels while ensuring that the religious communities organised on these same levels assume and exercise appropriate leadership and ownership of these efforts. Multi-religious cooperation for peace and shared well-being is the hallmark of Religions for Peace. This cooperation includes but also goes beyond dialogue and bears fruit in common concrete action.
