A Better Community for All Pakistan (ABC4ALL) was launched on Global Love Day in 2008. As a Cooperation Circle, we have organized community meetings to inform women and children in our community about URI's Preamble, Purpose and Principles. We have also met with other faith communities to dialogue and celebrate worldwide events like International Day of Peace and World Interfaith Harmony Week. Our participation in World Interfaith Harmony Week 2013 was particularly successful. To celebrate this occasion, Muslim and Christian school children and teachers came together to eat, pray, and share songs and poems about harmony, love, and peace.
This CC was started in Sweden in 1998 by a group of eight people who wanted to serve the needs of people in Africa. In 1999 they established a group in Uganda, named AFFINET CC. There are over 100 members working with communities to demonstrate their respect for one other, and stewardship for the earth and its rich supply of resources. Members value harmony in the world of nature, not exploitation of its resources.
The name AflaIai is the word used by the Mapuche people to mean “eternal.” This group came together to revive their cosmovision and ensure its eternity through promoting their language, culture, its values and spirituality. In doing so, they hope to heal the earth and enrich the larger community. One of the highlights of their work has been to promote gatherings between Mapuche women, the ones who have been entrusted to share their ancestral knowledge. Another highlight has been to restore the cultivation of medicinal plants, a practice which has been replaced by the commercial venture of ornamental plants.

We work toward this goal by conducting classes about religions and visiting centers of learning.

ANT-Hiroshima is a non-governmental organization based in Japan which draws its inspiration from the experience of the A-bomb survivors who, together with support from the international community, worked to rebuild their shattered city in a spirit of peace and reconciliation. In a similar spirit, ANT-Hiroshima is involved in a range of relief, reconstruction, and peace-building projects in a number of countries, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, and the Philippines.
ANT-Hiroshima’s work is rooted in its mission to provide the victims of natural disasters and violence with both material and emotional support. We bring a human touch to the provision of emergency relief in areas devastated by disaster and conflict by providing immediate material needs like food, clothing, water, shelter, and medical supplies and services with warmth and compassion.
