As usual, we who are in the business of education has a lot of challenges, as we see that there is a need to continue in influencing and educating critical key people and groups to continually participate in the peace process and encourage people to participate in interfaith and intrafaith dialogue, to encourage communities to be more open to a concept of a multicultural society.

With a new year coming ahead of us, we face a question :

Are we ready for the changes and challenges in the coming year?
