[HWPL] HWPL Held HWPL Peace Educator Training Education in Colombia!


[HWPL] HWPL Held HWPL Peace Educator Training Education in Colombia!

Chairman ManHee Lee is the head representative of the global peace organization HWPL (Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light), which is striving for the enactment and implementation of the international peace law 'Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW)'. The  DPCW is a legal instrument comprised of 10 articles and 38 clauses that can end wars and hostilities throughout the world. HWPL is also spreading a culture of peace and implementing peace education.

Chairman ManHee Lee experienced the cruelty and tragedy of war as a veteran of the Korean War. This is one of the reasons why he founded a global peace campaign as the head of HWPL. He has traveled the globe more than 35 times to meet and persuade politicians, legal experts, journalists, professors, peace activists, civil organization leaders, heads of tribes and others to unite them for the work of peace. The significant fruits borne out of his hard work are the World Alliance of Religions' Peace (WARP) Summit and HWPL Peace Committee. The DPCW was drafted and finalised by the HWPL Peace Committee.

How, you may wonder, do I know this? About 10 years ago, when I had just been discharged from military service, I came to know HWPL and Chairman ManHee Lee while researching the topic of civil conflicts to satisfy my curiosity in ongoing global issues. At that time, the island of Mindanao in the Philippines was suffering from a major civil conflict that lasted more than 40 years, and Chairman ManHee Lee and HWPL resolved this conflict through non-violent means.

Chairman Lee brought an end to the conflict in Mindanao by holding a peace talk between the warring Catholic and Islamic groups. Before the talk, HWPL and Chairman ManHee Lee held a Peace Walk to spread the culture of peace in Mindanao with the many locals who had gathered out of a desire for peace.

Chairman ManHee Lee's pressing appeal today is that humanity unites for sustainable peace in order to pass on the legacy of peace to future generations worldwide. He doesn't just talk peace, but has worked tirelessly for it through practical peace campaigns for over a decade.

I decided to become a supporter of HWPL and Chairman ManHee Lee's peace initiatives because I also desire a world of peace for all posterity.

Today I'd like to introduce HWPL Peace Educator Training Education that was hosted by HWPL in Colombia. This is a part of HWPL's DPCW which encourages peace culture by teaching the world peace. HWPL provides peace education curriculum including text books and peace educator training program so each country or state or any organization can operate peace education by itself. Let's look at following article together :)

2023 HWPL Peace Educator Training Education in Colombia

 On February 27th, March 4th, and March 31st, 15 educators from George Williams College in Colombia participated in HWPL Peace Educator Training.

For the first time in Colombia, the teachers who participated in the peace teacher training program participated in the education with a sense of responsibility as peace teachers. This education was conducted as a time to understand and learn about the value and importance of peace education through the contents of HWPL peace textbooks.

Paola Andrea Bolaños Melo, a Castellan language and ethics teacher at George Williams College, shared his impression after the training, “It was a very enriching thing that needed to be shared with students, family, and acquaintances, as it allowed us to reflect on and seek the path to peace education and learning. My plan is to continue with the values instilled in me from home, based on respect for others and myself. My mentality remains the same that we cannot build peace when selfishness and resentment invade our minds and hearts and that no matter how insignificant it may seem to others, we must always do good deeds for peace.”

 Luz Enith Prieto de Rodriguez, a mathematics teacher at George Williams College, shared her determinations for the future and stated, “All that is about the love of peace is my favorite subject. it is the chair that strengthened that link I have with the subject. All my life as a teacher, I’ve been practicing it by instilling in each of my students from that self-love, that self-respect, and that love of nature. I’ve instilled it could say my whole life. Continue with my task of leaving that legacy to my students. My job is a vocation, so I do it with love and when I do it with love, I know that it’s going to fall into each of my students and therefore into their homes. Always being consistent between what I do and say, is a reflection of my practice. I have to live and set an example in order to be a messenger of peace. Peace begins with me.”

 On March 31st, the last day of the training, all 15 educators were given certificates of completion of the HWPL Peace Educator Training Education. Afterward, the educators pledged to teach peace as Colombian peace educators actively. Together with HWPL, they plan to conduct a peace education program for Colombian youth at the end of April.
