Encouraged by officials from the Washington, D.C., mayor's office and a local councilwoman's office, some 55 middle- and high-school students and a half-dozen of their teachers turned out Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013 to sweep the streets and wash shop windows on a historic Washington, D.C., thoroughfare. The service project was organized by Women's Federation for World Peace USA (WFWP) as part of its 21st annual National Assembly. Prior to the kids' hitting the streets on and around Georgia Avenue Northwest, Keith Holman, a community affairs assistant to Washington Mayor Vincent Gray, exhorted the youth by telling them, "You are leaders of future. Have a big vision for yourself. Develop a broad horizon. Go many places and travel the world to do this." The pre-service gathering…

The Haiti Summer Service Project for 2012 saw a new approach to the needs of the people of Cap Haitien, Haiti, the site of our Haiti Summer Service Project for the past four years. Rather than just bring in food, clothing and medicines, we chose to add character education for the youth as well as health care education for the adults. To respond to requests from principals and teachers in Cap Haitien as well as women leaders to help teach the young people right from wrong, we decided to share the character education curriculum of the Universal Peace Federation, founded by the Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon, husband of WFWP founder Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon. With the support of Angelika Selle, president of WFWP…

Councilman Manuel R. Grova of Elizabeth, New Jersey, has commended a local nonprofit organization, the Women's Federation for World Peace (WFWP), for voluntarily cleaning up Jackson Park every week since July. "Since the ladies of the Women's Federation for World Peace started coming to the park on Sunday afternoons in July, it has become a much cooler venue for citizens, and I want to do my part," said Grova. "The men and women who volunteer for this effort are showing ownership of their little corner of the universe, and that's a good thing. The long-term result of this kind of effort is that crime will go down, property values will rise, and Elizabeth, New Jersey, will become a place where more people will want to…

Evelyn Drake, WFWP Tampa chapter leader, a native of Haiti, was the motivating force behind the Haiti Relief Project. Desperate to do something for her native land, she traveled there in February 2010 with a team from the Christian Disaster Response. Beginning in the summer of 2008, WFWP, USA volunteers went to Haiti with Mrs. Drake to participate in service projects, along with volunteers from the International Relief Friendship Foundation (IRFF). That year, they painted a high school in Port-au-Prince and helped a medical project in Cap-Hatian. In the summer of 2009, they helped with a tree planting project in a rural area, as well as with medical assistance activities. For questions, comments and more information on our service projects in Haiti contact Evelyn Drake…

This year's Haiti Summer Service Project took place from June 21st~June 30th. Once again we traveled to Cap-Haitian and worked with Mayor Fritz Joseph. This project was naturally more intense and serious than our past service projects due to the Jan. 12th earthquake. Cap-Haitian is normally a city of 190,000 but 150,000 have relocated there, so the need is great. The Women's Federation for World Peace (WFWP) and International Relief Friendship Foundation (IRFF) joined together once again to serve the people of Haiti. Based on the hard work of Lunise Perard, WFWP was able to secure a 5-bedroom house for one year at a low price. Through this, our women's group of five volunteers from the United States could join fifteen volunteers from Haiti to…
