New Chapters Build Teams and Relationships 17 July , 2013
World Faith Bangladesh underwent some leadership changes, and so the Chapter created committees for the Barisal, Chittagong, and Rangpur areas, ensuring equal representation of gender, faith, and ability in each. The committees set dates for local public campaigns, identifying topics like tree plantations, community clean-ups, and anti-drug drives. They also created plans to engage with local government, religious institutions, and schools.
World Faith Congo, our newest Chapter, has also worked hard since becoming a Chapter. 150 young leaders, both Muslims and Christians, came together in April to learn about each others’ religions and learn mediation techniques.
World Faith Pakistan worked with DASTAK to organize their first Community Awareness and Sensitization Program, on the theme, “Ending Domestic Violence Against Women.” The program aimed to assess the community’s attitudes towards violence towards women, and to create awareness on existing systems for both preventing violence and holding people accountable for violence against women.
48 female domestic workers who had attended the Women’s Adult Education Course attended the seminar, and WF Pakistan hopes to help them organize more rights-based programs in the future.
