Interreligious Dialogue Training course for Female Catholic Graduate students in Bangladesh

Bangladesh is Muslim Majority nation with Islam. The minorities have always been under threats of the majorities’ voices in Bangladesh.  Be it religious minority their voices are always unheard and are left behind in several sectors. Even in church lifestyle, as a Patriarchal- hierarchical model of the church and society in Bangladesh, women are still undervaluing. Many women suffer in silence in their cultures, church and society. In these circumstances, through IRD training Program for the Female Catholic students, Purobi Paschalina Chiran organized a course to empower women to build bridges the Catholics and Muslims and to foster understanding and peace between different religious traditions. The project received international recognition by the Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs which selected the initiative for the Intercultural Achievement Award.
