RYS Hosts an Interreligious Service Project in Mongolia

start stop bwd fwd

Mongolia—The participants and leaders of this project came from the diverse religious backgrounds of Islam, Buddhism and Christianity.

Participants partnered with the provincial government in the area. The head of the legal department and the city mayor of Khovd played key roles in facilitating the project. Mr.Ganbaatar, who serves as the social policy advisor to the president of Mongolia, also helped by translating and giving presentations.

The participants were generally unfamiliar with even the terminology of “interreligious work”; however, from the first day of introducing the concept, many changes were already perceptible. As a result of small but growing changes throughout the project, participants were able to grasp some of the meaning of RYS.

The work consisted of constructing a wall at the local Buddhist temple, and remaking the interior of the local Islamic mosque. Both were completed with satisfactory success.

The project was covered by the Mongolian National Radio as well as on television.

Participants: 17
Religions Represented: 3
Nations Represented: 3

Duration: August 7-13, 2005
