In association with our peace partners, HWPL- Heavenly Culture, World Peace and Restoration of Light, we have been running a signature campaign which involves taking signatures on one hand from world leaders who have the power to influence their nations’ efforts towards peace or war and on the other hand from masses who have no say in their country’s decisions in such matters but have a firm view as to what they want… war or peace.
21st September is observed as The International Day of Peace around the world each year. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. The Day’s theme for 2016 is “The Sustainable Development Goals: Building Blocks for Peace.”
WPDO has planned to celebrate the Day by sending 10,000 emailers to appeal to people to find new ways aiming to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all.
One of the main agendas and ongoing activities of WPDO is to ensure education for all. Along with other causes, the root of most of the conflicts around the world lies in lack of knowledge & understanding of local issues, customs, systems, culture, beliefs, etc. Without proper education, it increases ten times, escalating small issues into fireball situations, disturbing the peace in the neighboring regions.
WPDO is associated with many NGOs and social entrepreneurs who are working for education of poor & underprivileged children of the society and supporting them in their cause by providing stationary, infrastructure, teachers, etc.; providing scholarships to such students to support their higher education; affiliating with schools, colleges, universities and professional coaching institutes for enhancing their reach & resources and many other activities which ensure education for all.
WPDO is also running Masters & Doctoral level International courses on peace studies that enable a peace scholar to understand the diversity amongst people of earth, respect them as they are and resolve the conflicts through diplomacy & dialogues abandoning unrest & wars.
Religious diversity is another cause of conflict amongst people on the earth. For centuries, people have been fighting to save & spread their religious belief on to people of other faiths, causing great wars that changed the course of history. Today’s matured world allows people of all faiths to mingle together and live in harmony but its also true that despite all efforts by world leaders most of the skirmishes across the globe are caused by conflicts due to diversity in religious faith.
WPDO is not so big today that it can manipulate people of the world, but it does try to release the pressure at its level by supporting all religious faiths, supporting publications of books, articles, journals, papers, etc. promising prosperity of all people & their faiths, showing equal respect to all religions by showering equal importance to all, etc.
Hunger, unemployment and insecurity are the basic needs of people which if left unattended, may lead to fights & wars. History is the witness that more wars have been fought by instigating poor and half fed people than inspiring the fully satisfied ones. Even today, more unrest is amongst the nations that are economically not so well to do than the ones which are prosperous and growing. Even United Nations agenda for 2016 is “eradication of poverty & prosperity for all”. WPDO engages itself in addressing the issue through its affiliated NGOs who are constantly working towards making people self-reliant by empowering them with education and employment. Encouraging small businesses by facilitating resources is one of the many activities of WPDO in this direction. When this is replicated in other nations, it will catch the theme of international unison in addressing the mega issue. It would not be farfetched then to think of a people who is self-content in his dwellings and abolish all forms of war.
