LIAN Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization engaged in connecting individuals from diverse professional and religious backgrounds in philanthropic activities.

We channel charitable resources into high social impact initiatives and value-creation programs. We conduct our activities by researching and handpicking projects that we acknowledge through a designated Social Impact Fund.

We value our partners and aim at collaborating on a long-term basis to endorse our causes and participating in building a sustainable society.

Inter-Faith Dialogue

At the heart of LIAN Foundation’s mission lies the belief in the transformative power of peaceful dialogue for community building. We are committed to promoting social cohesion and religious inclusion by embracing cultural diversity and fostering cooperation.

The foundation provides the necessary resources to establish a framework for combating intolerance, stigmatization, discrimination, incitement to hatred, and violence against individuals based on religion, culture, or belief.

Our goal is to create an environment where acceptance, understanding, and mutual respect flourish, nurturing a society where individuals freely express their unique identities while embracing the richness of others’ backgrounds.

Our initiatives are driven by the vision of building a better tomorrow, where unity and cooperation become the cornerstones of a more compassionate and equitable global community.
