Building Bridges & Joining Hands

Inspired by this Qur’anic verse, IIT launched the “Building Bridges” and “Joining Hands” project which affords its members to contribute to worthy causes locally and around the world to make the world a better place. Our focus is to create forums of discussion and exchange to foster peace and tolerance.
