[HWPL] HWPL's Peace Education in Congo!



[HWPL] HWPL's Peace Education in Congo!

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 Congo :)

[HWPL True Story, Peace Education - Democratic Republic of Congo] Teachers longing for peace, “HWPL peace education will be a tool to prevent conflict”

The Democratic Republic of Congo has been affected by several civil wars and ethnic conflicts over several decades. From the late 1990s to the early 2000s, the Congolese Civil War was one of the most intense civil wars on the African continent. The civil war resulted in millions of deaths and caused massive population displacement and refugee problems.

The civil war is gradually calming down with the establishment of a peace agreement and increased international support, but conflict and violence still continue in some areas. To this day, the Democratic Republic of Congo is still facing many difficulties to do with stability and development. As the country has lived a life of pain due to a long civil war, its earnest desire for peace is second to none among other countries.

With the introduction of HWPL’s peace education in the Democratic Republic of Congo, hope is sprouting. According to Peace Education Department of HWPL Global 10 branch, which is in charge of peace education in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the HWPL Peace Education Department signed an MOU with Fraternité School Complex and ITP Batella schools and organisations. Additionally, five local teachers have been appointed and are working as peace teachers.
