SCI is an international not-for-profit organization based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Its mission is to improve the effectiveness of activism for progressive social change, particularly in divided societies and to influence the way this work is funded and supported. A key part of SCI’s work is to capture, distill, disseminate and apply lessons from philanthropy and activism particularly in the fields of reconciliation and human rights.

To survive as a human family, all of us have to recognize trust, and support one another much more than we have done in the past. May the Circle be an example to such a process of significant growth, of mutual understanding, of respect and tolerance.
