Intercultural Resources
The programs of the Abraham Institute offer exceptional opportunities for schools in South Australia and other groups to engage with interfaith dialogue.

NEW SECONDARY SCHOOL PROGRAM IN 2018
Abraham Institute's Secondary School presentations, Intercultural Understanding  are based on the Together for Humanity model, which aims to assist with the development of children's intercultural understanding in South Australian Schools.

Hatred and intolerance, or acceptance and respect, are learnt early. Prejudice and hatred dividing people who come from different cultural and religious backgrounds are a threat to a harmonious society in Australia.

The Abraham Institute works in SA Schools to help young people learn to co-exist peacefully through intercultural understanding. It is an organisation comprised predominantly of Christians, Muslims and Jews, but works with other minority cultural and religious groups and aims to expand the schools program in the near future to represent more cultural diversity. 


The Abraham Institute plans to launch it's Intercultural Understanding program into South Australian secondary schools during Harmony week 2018.
