School of Peace (SOP)

The School of Peace (SOP) was an idea born out of the Interfaith Cooperation Forum. The first SOP was held in Bangalore, India in 2006. The purpose of the SOP is to encourage engagement between peoples of different faiths in Asia. This is done through bringing together approximately 20 young adults from conflict areas of Asia who share different faith perspectives. Through lectures, exposure visits, and interaction with one another, the participants were able to learn about other faiths, and the importance of living with one another in peace.
