COFP Fellowship Program

 The Module 2 of the COFP Fellowship Program ready to commence on 28th October – 5th November, 2018, the COFP Fellowship is a one-year Certificate Course that aims at offering religious leaders (men, women and youth) and their communities the opportunity to increase and improve their capacity in peace and conflict resolution. To enhance their knowledge and experience in interfaith dialogue, Fellows will learn from one another and from a team of experts during the period of the Fellowship Program. The fundamental basis of this program is to develop a new approach in dialogue negotiation and peacebuilding skills that would enable religious men, women and youth at the grassroots level to engage in both academic and practical exercise that can help communities bridge gaps & build resilience for peace.
