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.
A-cause-tics came about when like-minded musicians affirmed the need to spread peace and love in its many dimensions through the songs that they make and play. These activities are geared towards personal development, mainly utilizing the talents and resources they can offer. A-cause-tics’ most memorable activity was their monthly gig at Conspiracy Bar. There, they were able to affirm their call as artists who want to impact change. They hope to encourage more supporters and members to the cause of peace and hope to stage bigger and more concerts, organize conferences, peace camps and venues to introduce inclusive, humanitarian and interfaith principles.

Action For Fundamental Change and Development (AFFCAD) was formed in 2009 by youth raised in Bwaise slums to empower slum communities to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS while promoting local self-reliance. Among our activities, AFFCAD offers HIV/AIDS prevention and reproductive health workshops, trains youth to serve as peer educators, distributes condoms and informational materials, operates a school attended by over 200 orphans and vulnerable children, and runs an orphanage for children abandoned by sex workers. Recognizing the strong link between HIV/AIDS and poverty, AFFCAD provides youth with vocational and entrepreneurship trainings to over 800 every year and empowers women to launch small businesses through training and microloans. To support its programs and educate outsiders about local issues, AFFCAD hosts “Slum Tours” for visitors. Many of the tourists who visit subsequently become fundraising ambassadors, child sponsors, grant writers, donors and volunteers for the organization in their home countries. Among their highlights AFFCAD organized the Slums Interfaith Youth Sports Gala held on 13th April 2013 at Kazo playground and with the support from CIVICUS, organized three community multi stakeholder meetings and a dialogue on “Enhancing Religious Pluralism and Tolerance” in Kawempe Municipality.

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.
