South African Faith Communities’ Environment Institute

After a multi-faith environment conference which called for the establishment of a faith-based environment initiative, SAFCEI was launched in 2005. It was registered as both a Public Benefit and Non-Profit Organisation (a Section 21 Company) in early 2006.

SAFCEI enjoys a broad spectrum of membership, including African Traditional Healers, Baha’i, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, Jewish, Quaker, and a wide range of Christian denominations. As a multi-faith organisation SAFCEI is committed to supporting faith leaders and their communities in Southern Africa to increase awareness, understanding and action-taking on eco-justice, sustainable living and climate change issues.

SAFCEI emphasizes the spiritual, moral and ethical imperative to care for the Earth and the community of all life. The organisation encourages ethical leadership in a world wounded by rampant exploitation and pursues and speaks out on issues of eco-justice, promoting and encouraging action.
