The Tony Blair Faith Foundation
The Tony Blair Faith Foundation aims to promote respect and understanding about the world’s major religions and show how faith is a powerful force for good in the modern world.
Faith is vitally important to hundreds of millions of people. It underpins systems of thought and of behaviour. It underpins many of the world’s great movements for change or reform, including many charities. And the values of respect, justice and compassion that our great religions share have never been more relevant or important to bring people together to build a better world.
But religious faith can also be used to divide. We have seen throughout history and today we still see how it can be distorted to fan the flames of hatred and extremism.
The Tony Blair Faith Foundation is a response to these opportunities and challenges. We will use the full power of modern communications to support and step up efforts at every level to educate, inform and develop understanding about the different faiths and between them.
What We Do:
Globalisation pushes people closer together. Religious faith motivates and influences billions of people in different ways. The ways in which these two great forces interract with each other and shape the world – for good and for ill – are complex. Our aim is to provide ways to understand more about religion’s relevance to the modern world, and to organise practical projects so that people of different faiths can work together to be a force for good across the globe. All our activities are designed to realise these core goals.
