The Nur Damai Multifaith Peace Group of Kuala Lumpur dreams of fostering friendship, trust, co- operation, respect and acceptance of differences. Members celebrate their diversity by understanding each other, their faiths and belief systems. Their dream is for inner transformation with the aim of promoting the common values of love, peace, unity and justice among people of all religions locally and globally.
The activities of the Cooperation Circle (CC) include:
1. Interacting with other interfaith bodies by attending and supporting their programs on Malaysian interfaith and national issues.
2. Establishing ties for ongoing dialogue with Sisters in Islam and Prof Ibrahim Zein of the International Islamic University in Kuala Lumpur (UIA).
3. On-going compilation of their interfaith stories that emerged from the Appreciative Interviews. They marked Nur Damai's first anniversary in January 2009 by bringing out a booklet of these stories of their Malaysian experience of intercommunal harmony.
4. Their 18 meetings so far have been exciting events in themselves—so much enthusiasm is generated and there is a promisingly high level of energy and initiative.
5. Their inaugural ceremony was an interfaith prayer and dedication ceremony attended by 20 friends of 5 faith traditions.
6. They have had 7 exposure trips so far, the highlight of which was a visit to a Hindu temple where the group participated in the pooja and bhajans and asked the Hindu youth group at the temple questions.
