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). 

Freedom of faith matters for women, business, peace and security, governance, human rights, freedom of speech and press, healthcare, and youth and education. When you support IGE, you are supporting freedom of faith which matters for all spheres of life.

We encourage you to take the next step in your journey with IGE: Browse our website, sign up to receive our monthly update emails, join our prayer list, engage with IGE on social media, or consider donating to support our work.
