Meet The Interfaith Working Group on Foreign Assistance
ONE UNIQUE VOICE: THE INTERFAITH WORKING GROUP ON FOREIGN ASSISTANCE (IWGFA) was formed in April 2013, bringing together Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist and Hindu faith-based global health and develop organizations to advocate for robust funding for humanitarian, peace-building and poverty-focused health and development assistance. The IWGFA currently includes over 50 U.S.-based organizations that work around the world. Together through its moral voice, the multi-faith community offers a distinct perspective on foreign assistance, reminding lawmakers that aid saves lives and promotes the dignity of all people, while advancing U.S. and global human security.
The IWGFA engages in regular Congressional visits, produces sign-on letters, organizers national call-in days, and holds Congressional briefings in support of foreign assistance. It also liaises with religious groups and leaders in cities and states across the country to bring in-district faith representatives to Congress.
You can help: Deliver the good news that you have faith in U.S. foreign assistance success! Funding desperately needs protection, and when the American people understand the impressive Return on Investment in lives, economic opportunities, and greater human and American security, foreign assistance receives the public support it deserves.
