Bridge Building


Bridge-Building & Conflict Resolution

Many parts of the world, especially and including the South Aria, remain hot spots for conflicts and tensions. Little has been done to diffuse such tensions and conflicts. Massacres and violence of one community against another have planted seeds of such deep mutual hatred and distrust. Without addressing such hatred and distrust, we can’t expect any better future.

We can make positive and substantive difference if we become committed to and better at seeking and emphasizing common grounds and building bridges, rather than destroying them.
