[IWPG] IWPG's Women's Peace Day in Ethiopia



[IWPG] IWPG's Women's Peace Day in Ethiopia

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 Women's Peace Day in Ethiopia.

The 5th 'April 26 International Women's Peace Day' commemorative event was held at the College of Natural and Computational Sciences in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

The event, hosted by the Ethiopia Addis Ababa branch of the International Women's Peace Group, was held under the theme of “Women Achieving Peace that the World Needs!” and brought female students, lecturers, girls with disabilities, scholars, representatives of women associations and women experts representing the Ministry of Women and Social Affairs together with a view to promoting peace.
The College of Natural and Computational Sciences is working in collaboration with IWPG to strengthen the role of women in ensuring peace among the community and the world at large.
Many students who gathered in the hope of peace have pledged to work together to achieve peace through reading the World Women's Peace Declaration

IWPG is currently in partnership with higher education institutions in Africa and other parts of the world to offer peace education for students at all levels.

We are One!
