Finding commonalities between ‘us’ and ‘them’
Project Common Ground is modeled after a long running programme by SUKA Society. Since 2011, SUKA Society had been running camps between refugee and Malaysian youths. The organization has always been looking for ways to bridge the gaps and foster understanding between different communities through peace-building activities.
In 2019, the organization started looking beyond the camp format to develop a more holistic programme that provides members of different communities adequate time and space to meet and share experiences.
Project Common Ground aims to:
|Foster understanding and remove prejudices between communities||Discover commonalities shared between communities and embrace the differences||Provide a safe platform for communities to meet and engage with one another|
