[HWPL] HWPL's Peace Education in Burundi



[HWPL] HWPL's Peace Education in Burundi

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 an article regarding HWPL's Peace Education in Burundi :)

[HWPL True Story, Peace Education-Burundi] Burundi, suffering from civil war, has hope through peace education… “Let’s raise messengers of peace”

Peace education is one of HWPL's major projects, based on the recognition that it is important to awaken the value of peace in order to pass on peace as a legacy to future generations. HWPL is striving to foster peaceful citizens by developing peace education courses, training teachers, and opening peace classes. Peace education being implemented all over the world shows the realisation of Article 10, ‘Spreading the Culture of Peace’, among the 10 provisions of the Global Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).

In particular, educational institutions in countries and regions suffering from long-standing wars and civil wars are giving more active support than anyone else to HWPL's peace education, which teaches practical peace. HWPL peace education is also actively underway in Burundi, a country in eastern Africa. Above all, HWPL's peace education is desperately needed in Burundi, where civil wars and conflicts are frequent.

A high-ranking Burundian official also visited Korea to attend the HWPL event. Former President of Burundi Domitien Ndayizeye, attended the 4th Annual Commemoration of the September 18th World Peace Summit hosted by HWPL on September 19th 2018. He said, “We must join forces to find a way to prevent war,” and added, “I ask all countries in the United Nations to support HWPL.”
