About Sisters of Faith for Peace
Sisters of Faith for Peace (SFP) are women of all faiths, coming together to work for peace by transcending the boundaries of their own faith and culture, thereby uniting together to work for the common purpose of peace.
As women we firmly believe that we have valuable qualities that lend themselves to the process of nurturing unity and enriching each other in our diversity, of forgiveness, compassion, peace and reconciliation and that lasting peace can be achieved by women working alongside the men, regardless of religious background, race or culture in mutual dignity and respect, based on love. We desire to do this through our interaction with one another, working jointly on peace activities, sharing and socialising, as well as offering workshops and awareness-raising events. We believe that this sets a condition over time, for the world to heal some of its differences. Just like when a pebble is dropped into the water, the ripples expand, the Sisters of Faith for Peace is aiming to be that pebble.
