Faith and Development
Faith-based perspectives can often have a significant influence on breaking underlying attitudinal, behavioural, and cultural norms and practices that perpetuate poverty and child vulnerability. Religion and values assert a strong social influence within most societies in Asia Pacific, and they play a significant role in guiding the thoughts, priorities, and actions of communities.
