We at LEAD realize that in the current times, the world is experiencing an enormous ecological, social and spiritual-cultural divide. The ecological divide is based on a disconnect between self and nature, the social divide between self and others, the spiritual implying the deep rooted disconnect  with oneself. These manifest in myriad ways like indiscriminate use of natural resources, increasing polarisation between the haves and have-not and the rapidly growing figures on burnout and depression respectively. Ever since we have known URI, we felt a very  strong synergy in the purpose of URI and LEAD India in bridging these divides that bring turbulence across the ecosystems around the globe.  URI’s initiatives to promote enduring, daily interfaith cooperation, to end religiously motivated violence and to create cultures of peace, justice, and healing for the Earth and all living beings a ray of hope and makes us see the possibilities of bridging this gap. Aligned to this LEAD ignites the leader present in each one of us through various learning journeys that invokes a sense of empathy, equity and shared understanding leading to peace.It is an honor for LEAD to work with URI on a noble cause in the border areas of  Jammu and Kashmir.
Our association with you has been immensely joyful and we see URI as an extended family of LEAD.  Wishing you more power to manifest love and justice among all life in our Earth community.
