[IWPG] IWPG's Peace Art Competition in Cameroon!



[IWPG] IWPG's Peace Art Competition in Cameroon!

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 IWPG's (HWPL's Women Affiliate) International Loving-Peace Art Competition in Cameroon

Preliminaries to the 6th International Loving-Peace Art Competition hosted by International Women's Peace Group (IWPG) were held in Cameroon in May this year.

Goodwill Ambassadors Of Hope (GWAH) Cameroon, in collaboration with Children For All Africa, successfully carried out a two-day preliminary event from 21st-22nd May in Mario Secondary School and Groupe Scolaire Bilingue François Virginie in Yaoundé. Both organisations collaborated to make the event a success.

A few days prior, on the 19th of May, the April batch of online Peace Lecturer Training Education (PLTE) participants passed their mid-term interview, thereby proceeding to the next level of becoming life-changing peace educators.

IWPG has established this ongoing training programme to educate and empower as many peace lecturers as possible. These peace lecturers will therefore provide peace education in their respective communities, countries and around the world until peace is achieved. These women are trained to serve as beacons of peace, spreading its message and restoring brightness to the world.

The International Loving-Peace Art Competition calls all young artists worldwide to channel their passion into art that inspires unity and harmony. The objective of this competition is to spread a culture of peace to the next generation who will lead mankind and to deliver the message of peace through pictures to children and youth suffering from war or conflict.

We are One!
