WORLD INTERFAITH HARMONY WEEK

The World Interfaith Harmony Week was first proposed at the UN General Assembly on September 23, 2010 by H.M. King Abdullah II of Jordan. On October 20, 2010, it was unanimously adopted by the UN and the first week of February is observed as World Interfaith Harmony Week.

The World Interfaith Harmony Week is a call for Muslim, Christian and all religious leaders to engage in a dialogue based on two common fundamental Commandments; Love of God and Love of thy Neighbor without compromising any of their own religious tenets. Every year since then, the UAC has partnered with Give them a hand Foundation to present events that meet this principle.

In February 2012, The United African Congress and Give them a Hand Foundation held their first forum at the UN with more than 100 persons attending. In 2013, over 400 guest including a traditional faith leader representing the Dosso religion from the Republic of Guinea. His attendance shed light the acceptance of indeginous remote beliefs and the evolution of present day religion.
