The "Pancasila Award" is presented annually by the Indonesian government. It honors individuals or institutions that raise awareness for a pluralistic Indonesian nation. The term Pancasila describes five principles of the Indonesian constitution, including humanism, democracy, social justice and national unity. Pancasila also includes a religious component, according to which every citizen in predominantly Muslim Indonesia must belong to one of the five major world religions: Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism or Confucianism.

One of the current Pancasila Awards goes to Rev. Gomar Gultom as an interfaith leader. Rev. Gultom is the president of the Indonesian Protestant Church Federation, PGI. The CIP is a key partner of Mission 21, active in interfaith peacebuilding, the program to overcome violence against women, good governance, and disaster risk reduction, among others.

The award was also given to another important partner organization of Mission 21, which is committed to interreligious dialogue and tolerance, among other things. The organization's leaders were honored LK3. Mission 21 co-finances selected projects of LK3 as part of its priority programs, in the areas of income generation for women and interfaith advocacy work for tolerance and pluralism and women's human rights.
