IGE catalyzes freedom of faith worldwide
so that everyone has the ability to live what they believe.
One of the main pillars of IGE's approach is "Relational Diplomacy": We overcome obstacles of culture and religion by creating and nurturing mutually beneficial relationships, inviting all viewpoints to the table, and working together as partners for the common good.
IGE is currently active in China, Vietnam, Laos, Uzbekistan, and Myanmar. IGE is also home to the Center for Women, Faith & Leadership (CWFL).
