Today's 'Ambassador Profiles' features Shariful Islam, an ACWAY Ambassador from Bangladesh. :)

Following the July terror attacks in Dhaka, Shariful saw a city struggling to come to terms with what happened and set out to create a project that promoted peace, tolerance and coexistence and fight the threats of extremism.

‘Peace Ride’ seeks to help rebuild trust, understanding and goodwill among the people of Dhaka by using rickshaw-pullers to wear t-shirts that promote this positive message.

The message, written in Bengali, that was printed on the t-shirts said: “Let’s grow above our differences in religion and race. Let’s come together to make the world a better place!”

“On average each rickshaw carries 30 passengers a day. So the 1000 rickshaw-pullers with the branded t-shirts take the message to about 30,000 people everyday!” - Shariful

Continuing with our 'ACWAY Ambassador Profiles' project, we would like to introduce you to Jana Jakob, an ACWAY Ambassador from Sweden who founded ’Soul Sisters', an inter-religious and inter-cultural girls’ project in Stockholm.

Identifying the issues of spatial and societal segregation in the city, 'Soul Sisters' provides a meeting place for girls from different cultures, religions and norms.

"Embedded in the inter-religious, inter-cultural and inter-
sectional paradigms, our work aims to be normative-critical and empowering." - Jana
