This manual is designed for facilitators of the ‘Do No Harm for Faith Groups: Christian-Muslim Edition’ workshop for partners. The participants in these workshops are religious leaders and faith-based organisation (FBO) staff who work closely with the host organisation. The workshop relates Do No Harm (DNH) principles – also known as Local Capacities for Peace (LCP) – to faith teachings.

The version posted here is an excerpt of the full manual. World Vision strongly advises that this manual be used only by individuals trained as facilitators.

World Vision is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organisation dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. Inspired by our Christian faith and values, we are dedicated to working with the world’s most vulnerable people.We serve and collaborate with all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.

The references to scriptures of faiths other than the Bible within this publication are provided by our partners, authors and contributors to this manual as examples of selected texts from religious traditions relevant to the specific context of different faiths where we work, and to the theme of this publication. Inclusion of these references in this publication is meant to appeal to communities of different faiths to help influence behaviour change for the well-being of children who live in these religious contexts and does not imply endorsement of these beliefs by World Vision International or its affiliates. All readers of this material are encouraged to receive these materials in a spirit of mutual cooperation to ensure the well-being of the most vulnerable children of our nations.
