SIRC is an independent non-profit NGO that came into being as a result of co-operation among the Council of the International People's Friendship, Sudan Council of Churches, the Society for Religious Dialogue and the International Centre for Religion and Diplomacy (Washington).

SIRC believes that the protection of religious freedoms and tolerance of all faiths are essential for building a sustainable peace in Sudan. They organise trainings and awareness-raising for religious leaders and the public in order to spread the message of peaceful co-existence. For example, SIRC conducted a training workshop on the protection of religious freedom, in which a number of youths from different religions and sects participated.
