National Chapter formed in Nepal


A new chapter has been founded in Nepal.

Formed in May 2003, the chapter has already held an inauguration ceremony (attended by 125 people) and sponsored both an art and essay competition at two secondary schools.

In October 2003, the chapter sponsored four half-day programmes in western Nepal (Terai region) that examined the situations of the Christian, Hindu, Muslim, and Buddhist communities respectively. These symposia were attended by a total of nearly 120 participants. Through interaction and open discussion, the chapter gained valuable knowledge about the religious life of Nepal. The symposia also resulted in the formation of several district-level committees to facilitate the chapter’s work to bring religions in the country into closer dialogue.
