NamasteConcord Namaste Fund

Concord has set up a special fund to provide grants to enable young people to engage in interfaith dialogue by, for example, attending conferences, workshops and lectures in Britain or overseas, such as the youth events organised by the Interfaith Network of Great Britain.

The word ‘namaste’ refers to the form of greeting commonly used in India, illustrated here. It is a respectful, peaceful way of recognising the divine in another person, which encapsulates the spirit of true interfaith dialogue.

The fund is administered by the registered trustees of Concord.

Young people aged 14-21 can apply for a grant of up to £100. Click here for more details.
