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.

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 Another highlight has been to restore the cultivation of medicinal plants, a practice which has been replaced by the commercial venture of ornamental plants.
