Coordinating Committee of Religions for Peace (UK) Women of Faith Network
Applications are invited from women of faith to serve on the Religions for Peace (UK) Women of Faith Network Co-ordinating Committee on a voluntary basis.
Religions for Peace sees women of faith around the world as having enormous capacities for leadership and effective action to build peace and promote just and harmonious societies. It believes that their experiences and resources, when mobilised, can strengthen community-based effective responses for peace and human development.
Currently in Europe there are women of faith networks in Belgium, Finland and France with discussions also taking place in the United Kingdom, Romania, Morocco, Bosnia Herzegovina and Italy to form National Women of Faith Networks.
Membership of the Women’s Co-ordinating Committee will be drawn from the following religions Baha’i, Buddhist, Christian, Jain, Jewish, Hindu, Muslim, Sikh and Zoroastrian.
Women who are interested in serving on the committee should send a CV to Mrs Ravinder Kaur Nijjar, Co-Chair RfP European Women of Faith Network, PO Box 7611, Glasgow, G42 2FT, giving details of any contribution to their own faith communities and inter faith dialogue/activities.
An understanding of issues concerning women in general and women of faith in particular is important.
