Women working together to realize one global family rooted in a culture of sustainable peace.
Empowering women, as peacebuilders and leaders in the family to transform the community, nation and world.
Through education, advocacy, partnership, reconciliation and humanitarian service, WFWPI aims to create an environment of peace and wellbeing for future generations and people of all races, cultures and religious creeds.
Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, the Founder of the Women's Federation for World Peace International, has dedicated her life to the quest for peace. Along with her husband, the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, she has worked with heads of state, Nobel prize winners, religious leaders, and men and women of the arts to create a world of God's ideal. This pursuit has taken her to the halls of power. In July of 1993, she was the first Korean woman to address a meeting of United States Senators and Congressmen on Capitol Hill. Two months later, on September 7, Mrs. Moon became the first Korean woman to give an address in the United Nations. Her message on both these occasions connected women's responsibility in the quest for world peace with the deepest elements of human existence: the heart of God, the suffering of humanity, and the meaning of human history. As a mother of 14, she is a woman of intense devotion to God, to the world, and to her husband and family - a woman of true love.
"History is calling for reconciliation, compassion, love, service and sacrifice. Today's problems cannot be solved by the logic of power... Our present problems can only be solved by the logic of love."
The Women's Federation for World Peace UK (WFWP UK) is part of a network of National WFWP Chapters in over 120 nations that are dedicated to empower women with "the knowledge, the tools and the support needed to create peace at home, peace in our communities, our nations and throughout the world".
Programs, designed according to local needs and capacities, include: leadership training for women and girls, education for peace and reconciliation, skills development and advocacy at major UN Offices and various regional and national institutions. In support of United Nation Development Goals, WFWP maintains over one hundred service projects in fifty nations, in the areas of education, vocational training, microcredit, AIDS prevention education, technical support, medical assistance and nutrition guidance.
We adhere to the principle that women, working together, taking initiative and empowering one another across traditional lines of age, race, culture and religion to create healthy families, are resolving the complex problems of our world. Ultimately "solutions" come as true partnerships between men and women are established in all levels of society. The beginning point is within society's most elemental level-the family. From there, Peace will naturally expand.
