Community Programs are reserved for institutions, organizations and groups of persons taking the Distance Learning Course for Community Reports. Each Community Program receives a user name and a password for their work space on the Distance Learning Course. This preserves the confidentiality of their work until such time as they post it on the Tandem Project website.

Community Programs may exchange information with each other on specific aspects of the study topics by e-mail. These communications are kept confidential or posted on the Tandem Project website only if agreed upon by both communities. The final written Community Reports on Human Rights and Freedom of Religion or Belief will be posted on the website and sent by e-mail to the United Nations Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights, and United Nations Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief.
