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 & threatened by other faiths due to lack of understanding of their own faith. We strive to replace insecurity & ignorance with awareness & turn the fear & hostility that often surrounds religious/cultural differences into understanding & engagement. Awareness Sunday had high-profile ecumenical/interfaith support. Building on the unique goodwill the follow-up project seeks to turn the evil carried out by a few in the name of religion on 9/11 into a force for good

Solution

‘Education for Action’ 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 and spreading a message & culture of love, awareness, trust & life in place of fundamentalism’s culture of hatred, ignorance, fear & death
