Interact is a youth-led non-profit organisation that brings together people from all faiths, beliefs and cultural backgrounds. Their aim is to build a cohesive society where diversity is valued and celebrated. They achieve this by creating opportunities for face-to-face dialogue through side-by-side action, building respect and understanding through interaction.
