Our CC's activities include many interfaith meetings, workshops and seminars on religion, and visits to social and religious leaders.
Sharing in the vision of the URI, Kalinaw (meaning "peace" in the Cebuano language) CC members deepen their knowledge and understanding of the various faiths through rituals and celebrations and by promoting health and and well-being with spiritual awareness. With regular monthly meetings, the CC engages in advocacy work for environmental concerns and establishes relationships with other organizations and like-minded faith groups. The CC also organizes interfaith concerts, like the Celebration of Life and International Day of Peace celebrations at the University of Cebu campus, and promotes Peace and Good Citizenship Month which started in September 2009. The CC also focuses on gender empowerment, poverty alleviation, values education, livelihood program and participative governance. Together with the local government, Kalinaw CC launched an Interfaith Sector in Cebu, and collaborated with the Office of Muslim Affairs on different programs like the Koran Reading Contest, etc.
Our Cooperation Circle was established in 1999 by a gathering of Muslims, Christians, and Hindus in the city of Karachi. The addition of Sikhs, Theosophists, and Zorastrians has expanded our group. Our work to establish peace and tolerance among sects within a religion now extends to all five provinces of the city: East, West, Centre, South, and Malir.
Our Cooperation Circle conducts programs for the promotion of harmony and understanding among different communities. The nearly three hundred students that attend Karickam International Public School attend seminars, celebrate International Day of Peace, and participate in a day of service in celebration of Gandhi Jayanthi. Every year, we send our senior students to the URI National Assembly in Santhigiri Ashram, Alwaye. We also host essay competitions, peacebuilding training workshops, and guest speakers.
Our CC holds regular programs and camps for youth to equip them to fight against religious extremism.
Our purpose is to end religiously motivated violence and to put aside our differences so that we may serve society as one, united organization.
We believe that unity in diversity will bring harmony and happiness to our society. In addition to planting trees and providing education for the underprivileged, our Cooperation Circle also works for the betterment of conditions for female children through a project called “Nanhi Chhaon” (tiny shade).
We are an interfaith spiritual community of long duration. Our programs include the Feed Everyone Program where we feed hundreds weekly and visit nursing homes; the Stamp Out Hunger program; the Back to School Bash where we provide 1,000 kids with food and school supplies; and the Women's Empowerment program in Uganda.
