The FPCC Initiative brings together three main partners who lead the initiative in collaboration with
other faith-based stakeholders and partners.
i. UNICEF is an agency of the United Nations responsible for providing humanitarian and developmental aid to Children worldwide and is the technical and resource mobilization partner in the initiative
ii. Religions for Peace is the interfaith convening partner and builds on its over 50 years legacy to mobilize its global network of over 90 national interreligious councils (including women of faith and youth) for frontline action, interventions, community feedback, and engagement activities.
iii. The Joint Learning Initiative on Faith and Local Communities (JLI) serves as the initiative&#knowledge partner assisting with evidence generation and development of knowledge products and assets.

The three partners form the FPCC Core Coordinating group and operate from their global headquarters in New York with regional coordination and collaboration structures in Africa, Asia, Latin America & the Caribbean and the Middle East and North Africa regions. In addition, the FPCC Core group facilitates the incorporation of FBOs' coordinated voice and input into partnership initiatives.  At the regional level, FPCC has advisory groups comprising Religions for Peace regional affiliates, UNICEF Regional Offices and JLI Coordinators who guide and support strategy, planning, implementation and resource mobilisation for context specific activities and actions The FPCC model has been successfully tested and implemented in ESAR (East and Southern Africa) and WCAR (West and Central Africa) and is now being replicated in other regions, including ROSA (South Asia),), and LACR (Latin America and Caribbean). Elements of FPCC are also being implemented in MENA (Middle East and North Africa, ECAR (Europe and Central Asia), with a primary focus on migrants and refugees, as well as EAPR (East Asia and Pacific).
