Visit of the French Delegation on 23 October 2015

The French Embassy in South Africa and the French government supported the second interfaith world tour initiative involving four young French people (3 females and a male – Lucie, Léa Ariane and Samir, aged between 19 and 27 years old) from different faith backgrounds (Christian, Muslim, Jewish and Atheist).

Since July 2015, these four young people crossed more than 13 countries (of a total of 32) and were in South Africa from 22nd October until 1st November 2015.

The end project is to carry out conferences, to collect academic data, to sensitise young audiences about cultural diversity, the relationship between religions and the world, to give a testimony of positive peace solution, and fighting stigma. During the first faith world tour in 2013-2014, more than 453 initiatives were documented.
