RELIGIONS FOR PEACE EUROPEAN WOMEN OF FAITH NETWORK
Brings together a wide diversity of faith and interfaith-based women's organisations in Europe to work together for peace. The Network creates opportunities for women to communicate and learn from each other, share good practice and work in partnership with other organisations on issues concerning women and girls, grounded in faith. The Religions for Peace European Women of Faith Network allows women from different religions and cultures to coordinate strategies and pool resources and capabilities for cooperative action, shared security to achieve results that would be difficult for any single member to accomplish alone.
As part of Religions for Peace Global Women of Faith Network, the Network promotes the building of peace by working with religious leaders, faith communities, governmental, statutory and voluntary organisations as well as through practical projects at the grassroots level. It commits to put into practice the shared human and spiritual values in all aspects of its work and relationships.

- Enhance inter-faith networking among women of faith in Europe
- Strengthen the capacities of women of faith to build peace,, promote just and harmonious societies and transform conflict through congregations and religious women’s organizations in Europe.
- Promote gender equality and women’s empowerment in multi-religious collaboration for peace.
