Chapter Leader

Jahangir Piara

The vision of COE Pakistan is to promote human values, social justice and bring harmony among the people of all faiths and sects.  COE Pakistan provides opportunity to women, children and potential social leaders. In addition, religious leaders of different faiths are also targeted to encourage respect of differences among all faiths and sects.


Jahangir Piara is working for peace education and interfaith harmony along with their other development programs like health, advocacy on women and child rights. He is currently working as Member of the Youth Steering Committee of United Religions Initiative and also a representative for South Asia of International Peace Bureau. He has been working for peace-building and interfaith harmony for the last eight years. He has participated in many regional and international conferences and events which have built his confidence and enhanced his capacity and knowledge about peace and interfaith harmony. He believes that to bring a positive and peaceful change in the world, we need to work at the grassroots level with the involvement of local people for a culture of peace around the world. He thinks that this is the time for peace and development of mutual understanding and we must use it properly to bring peace and interfaith harmony around the world. If we will fail to do so our efforts and endeavors for peace will be vain and useless. Let’s open our hearts to accept our coexistence for a culture of peace and safety of human life around the world. The time is required from each and every peace actor to promote a sense of peace and interfaith harmony among the people of the world to save our planet and to make it a peaceful one for every living being.

"I to thank Children of the Earth for accepting my application for a COE Chapter in Lahore Pakistan and providing me with the opportunity to serve and promote the vision of Children of the Earth"
