Foro Abraham is an association where around 10 persons work as volunteers. In the group there are people of different religions with a strong network within their own communities, so this allows us to get close to many others. We have no stable source of finance but every year we manage to have enough money to do our activities. Around 2000 euros per year that we receive by private donations. We do interreligious events, iftars, Christmas dinner and interreligious cooking, conferences, collaborate with other NGO and other things.
What is the Forum?The Abraham Forum for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue is a non-profit association based in Spain.Through cultural and educational activities we want to contribute to the mutual knowledge of people of different religious beliefs.The Abraham Forum aims to create a space for dialogue from a socio-cultural, apolitical and academic approach, with absolute respect for the beliefs of its members and participants in its activities.To this end, we organize social and cultural activities, promote research in the field of interreligious and intercultural dialogue and cooperation between academic institutions and civil society in Spain and the world. We cooperate with national and international entities and activities of promotion, development and organization and / or sponsorship of artistic and cultural activities and volunteer training.
We organize conferences, we participate in intercultural concerts, intercultural camps and we do special events during Ramadan, Hanukkah and Christmas. For instance, we ask a little mosque in a little village to open the doors to all neighbors and we encourage them to visit it by organizing an activity inside. We are also planning to visit schools with an interreligious calendar to have the chance to discus about the importance of religion in the society.
We are the only association dedicated to interreligious dialogue whose structure is interreligious in itself. We believe that it is also necessary to address the religious dimension of people because it is often forgotten even though it is part of the identity. We can contribute to improve knowledge of minority religions and promote safe spaces for dialogue.
We are a small association and we need support to keep growing. We like the values of the Foundation and also personally, we know people who work in it and that gives us confidence.
