Embassy officials met with UNHCR, international NGOs, academics, and representatives of faith-based organizations to discuss religious pluralism, tolerance, and assistance to refugees fleeing religious persecution.  The embassy awarded multiple grants to partners in the country’s Deep South area for projects focusing on digital literacy, diversity and inclusion, youth engagement, and community building.  Embassy officials organized and led quarterly virtual training sessions on digital citizenship for peace and diversity.  The embassy also hosted interfaith meetings bringing together academics, religious leaders, community organizers, and youth influencers from across the country to create new connections, share their perspectives on religious freedom issues, and consider future collaboration.
