[HWPL] HWPL's Peace Education in Sri Lanka



[HWPL] HWPL's Peace Education in Sri Lanka

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 Sri Lanka :)

[HWPL True Story, Peace Education - Sri Lanka] “What we need to do now is to sow peace in the world and implement peace education”

Chairman ManHee Lee, founder of HWPL and a veteran of the Korean War, said, “Let’s create a world of peace without war and pass it on to future generations as a legacy,” and personally travelled around the world 31 times to encourage all students around the world to create and maintain peace. HWPL has taken the lead in peace education projects to help build strength.

Above all, HWPL's peace education does not just call for peace in words, but uses HWPL's peace actions, which Chairman Lee personally took the initiative to realise, as the basis for education. A case study is the peaceful resolution of the 50-year religious armed conflict on Mindanao Island in the Philippines, which was achieved through mediation by Chairman Lee himself. The 'step for peace' shown by a private organisation, not an international organization or a government agency, is attracting attention because it presents a clear answer to preventing the needless loss of life due to war.

In particular, the more countries have suffered from civil war, the more they realise the importance of HWPL's peace education. Sri Lanka is a country that experienced a civil war for 26 years from July 23rd 1983 to May 18th 2009. It was a civil war between Sri Lanka and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), a Tamil rebel group. The 26-year civil war ended when Sri Lankan government forces suppressed areas controlled by the LTTE. The civil war has ended, but the wounds are still not healed, and the desire for peace is earnest. This article explores peace education in Sri Lanka.
