About Project Mosaic:
Project Mosaic is a charity that teaches people to be more tolerant of those coming from a different background, whether racial, ethnic, religious, national or economic. It does this by promoting interfaith and intercultural tolerance, multiethnic good citizenship and integration of immigrant communities, and by combating prejudice, group hatred and extremism. Project Mosaic was set up in memory of David Fontana, one of the 343 firefighters that died on September 11, 2001 while helping to rescue some 28,000 people from the World Trade Center in New York.
