The best relationships are based on trust and integrity. When things go wrong the real divisions often turn out to be the gaps between our ideals and the way we actually live.  Whenever someone, takes honest steps to close the integrity gap, that action communicates to others. It inspires a growth in the human spirit that sparks initiatives of change in families, communities and beyond.

In this sense, everyone can take initiatives springing from a change in attitudes or motivation.

As a national team, Initiatives of Change in Australia focuses on four main areas:

  • Training programmes to help people find a path and a purpose for living
  • Working for reconciliation between Aboriginal and other Australians
  • Building bridges of trust between Australia's diverse peoples and cultures based on respect for shared core values
  • Supporting regional initiatives in the Asia-Pacific region to heal conflicts, fight corruption and build sustainable communities
