If you want to go far, go together” Better World organization for Community Development celebrated WIHW 2019 with different activities.

We believe on the theme we used for this year; that if we go a lone (which means work or live alone) we are able to go fast but not far! But if we go, work and live together despite of any differences among us we are able to go far and achieve deep goals and create better world where all people live in peace and happiness. That is why, young Yazidis, Christians, and Muslims together celebrated World Interfaith Harmony occasion by working together and implanting activities together to develop their community and create harmony among people of different faiths, ethnicities, and backgrounds.
