Dear URI sisters and brothers and interrested people in our work.
Welcome to a short review about our projects in Austria and worldwide.
What we beliefe and why we work together:
“ There is only one human family and only one creator of the universe and we are sisters and brothers with all living creatures and responsible for the welfare of all. “

Some of our projects:
- The „Bell for peace and friendship“ on Top of a mountain near Lienz. With stones from more than 100 countries and from holy places of the Worlds Religions: Mekka, Lhasa, Ganges, Israel, Haiffa and more. Build 2016 and many people ring the bell with the words „I ring for peace and friendship.“
- Since 2011 we observe the WIHW with different offers.
- During the „World Interfaith Harmony Week 2019“ more than 400 children and grown up started a „Rain of friendship“ with good wishes, written on eatable paper. They travel with the water from rivers through the landscape. The sun made clouds from it and somewhere it will start to rain blessings from heaven to earth.
