World Faith is proud to announce the establishment of World Faith Indonesia! World Faith Indonesia – Institute MOSINTUWU, is a grassroots community movement in the post-conflict area of Poso, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. World Faith Indonesia strives to empower vulnerable groups, especially women and children, through education. Members of Institute MOSINTUWU consist of women (the majority of them are members of the Women’s School and victims of the conflict), ex-combatants (both Muslim and Christian), peace activists, and college students. World Faith Indonesia´s vision is to secure peace and sovereignty for the people of Poso. The vision extends to social, economic, political, cultural, and civil rights. Lian Gogali, National Director of World Faith Indonesia, decided to devote her life to interfaith work being deeply affected by the communal conflict between Muslims and Christians in Poso between December 1998 and December 2001.
