PROTECTING FREEDOM OF RELIGION OR BELIEF

Bellwether International strives to promote and protect freedom of religion or belief at the intersection of human rights. We focus on the following four pillars to enact measurable and sustainable change.

EDUCATION

Education occurs in the home with families and neighbors, and whoever you claim as family and neighbors. Our education programs aim to build society from the family locus, outwards and upwards.

GENDER EQUALITY

Religious and belief systems have incredible potential to close the gender gap and provide equal opportunity, advocacy against gender-based violence, and inclusivity.

AID TO DISPLACED PERSONS

Our world is experiencing unprecedented numbers of refugees with over 26.0 million refugees in the world—2.1 million people have been displaced because of religion in Nigeria alone. We seek to help groups such as the 909,000 Rohingya Muslims of Myanmar who have been displaced since March 2019. 

ADVOCACY

Advocacy happens in communities through religious leaders and local governments. We seek to support local leaders and raise the international importance of freedom of religion or belief as a fundamental human right.
