World Interfaith Harmony Week: How the Parliament can Help you Host a Stellar Event and Apply for a Monetary Award
All around the world, organizations and individuals host events during the first week of February to help neighbors of different faiths get to know each other and build a foundation for more peaceful and friendly communities. World Interfaith Harmony Week is a program of the UN General Assembly was adopted in 2010 upon the proposal of HM King Abdullah II and HRH Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad of Jordan. It encourages grassroots events that link people together in a global wave of understanding, respect, and action. King Abdullah II continues to support World Interfaith Harmony Week each year by recognizing individuals and organizations that have hosted a top-quality event. Winners receive an award, a trip to Jordan, and a cash prize of $25,000, $15,000 or $5,000. The Parliament has received a grant from the John Templeton Foundation to help individuals and organizations host an event and apply for an award.
