SPEECH CONTEST FOR YOUNG WOMEN IN THE UK 2018 

If you are a young woman living in the UK we want to give you the opportunity to share your beliefs, values and ideas on stage before an audience. We believe that this will be an educational and rewarding experience to demonstrate a high level of eloquence, grasp relevant content and step out of your comfort zone.

WFWP's Birmingham Council of Faiths during UK’s ‘National Interfaith Week' We watched a film about reconciliation in Nigeria and talk about peace, forgiveness. We were asked by the Birmingham Council of Faiths, to support the UK’s ‘National Interfaith Week’. We decided to show a remarkable film about reconciliation in Nigeria.

The WFWP Christmas party was a great success this year, the capacity audience  of fifty five enjoyed some nice musical performances by Amabel Vitae (Have yourself a Merry Christmas), Eileen Walkin (Poem: Peace in our world), ten year old Vaishnavi playing a  Christmas medley on violin and singing “Colours of the Wind” and three young girls, Garima, Agrima and Anita singing ‘Silent Night’.

Namaste!


My name is Jody Dontje and I am an International Humanitarian, Life Coach, Teacher, Co-Founder of Fundmycharitywork.com and the Founder of a non-for-profit charity called The Help Nepal Appeal. I had the immense pleasure and privilege of attending the 2017 WFWP EU Conference in Portugal. No words can describe the soul-enriching gratitude I feel for having been able to experience such a conference, as I was also sponsored by the WFWP in London due to winning the 2017 Speech Contest about ‘Women’s Issues in Today’s Society’.

WFWP & Birmingham Iranian Club Cultural Fair

Our local Birmingham WFWP Women's Peace Group has entered into a genuine partnership with the city's Iranian Club, supporting each others' events, to our mutual benefit. I was invited to have a stall at this year's Cultural Fair, to teach craft-making skills to Iranian women, young and old. They were amazingly creative, as you can see from the photos, making beautiful cards of all descriptions.
