Awareness Sunday marking 10 years since 9/11 was an opportunity for those of all faiths to come together in peace, forgiveness & reconciliation. The Foundation is seeking £50,000 for a follow-up educational project to help communities who most need it to learn how to reach out and 'live their faith'

Situation

Many people of faith are insecure about their faith, resulting in their feeling threatened by other faiths. A lack of confidence/understanding of their own faith also means they are unable to build bridges with neighbours of other faiths. Awareness Sunday received broad, high-profile ecumenical & inter-faith public support. By building on this unique goodwill, the follow-up project will seek to turn the evil carried out in the name of religion by a handful of people on 9/11 into a force for good

Solution

The Awareness Sunday campaign aims to see religion play a proper role through people of goodwill living their faith by educating themselves (through local churches/communities running the 8-session Awareness Course), empowering themselves to heal, reconcile, live their faith and transform relationships through concrete actions, sharing their example in the community & spreading a message & culture of love, awareness, trust & life in place of terrorism’s culture of hatred, ignorance, fear & death
