Rebuilding society

Japan: Work with Discriminated Buraku

The Buraku is a Japanese minority which is constantly faced with social discrimination. Although they were granted equal rights by law in 1871, everyday life is a totally different story. The KYODAN Church stands up for their rights.

Korea: Peace Work

The continuous back and forth between rapprochement and hostility - since the peninsula was divided over 60 years ago, this is how relationships have been between North and South Korea. The local church pursues a policy of peace and reunification.

Help for Syrian Refugee Children

Ghana: Interfaith Dialogue

The various religions in Ghana mostly live peacefully side by side. To ensure that everything stays this way, private and governmental institutions support the dialogue between the religions continuously. The Presbyterian Church is also actively engaged at local level.
