Bridges is a non-government and over-confessional organization, which brings together people of faith from different religious traditions represented in Bulgaria. The main goal of a forum is to be a platform for dialogue for the Christian denominations and to present and to popularize the peaceful model of co-existence between Orthodox Christianity and Islam in our country. In our future work we will be guided by the following basic principles and goals: 1) To reinforce the contacts between different religious communities in Bulgaria and to create basis of interreligious and intercultural dialogue; 2) To enhance understanding and mutual respect among members of different religions traditions; 3) To bring together people from different religious experience and ethnic background to help understand diversity; 4) To create contacts with men and women of different religious communities in Bulgaria and in Eastern European countries; and 5) To promote the tolerance and the equality between men and women in the professional domain and especially in the Theological domain – Teaching and Research. Bulgaria is a crossroad of civilizations and religions is a bridge connecting Christianity with Islam. That is why a Forum for dialogue should emerge to bring together different religious groups and traditions.
