As I reflect back on the Women’s Federation for World Peace and the Washington, DC Metro Area Day of Service on October 20, 2016; I must say, participating in the set-up was fun. Although there were several ladies there, one stood out to me among the group: Minister Chi Mauuso.Minister Chi is so dedicated to the Day of Service initiative that I cannot even start to express how much. When she mentioned the push brooms, shovels, rakes, and other items she was responsible for bring to the program, it never crossed my mind how many and how heavy the items would be. Now I know, after assisting her and others with packing the heavy items in a car after the program and ensuring their delivery…

“Anyone can serve.” These words of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. set the stage for the 4th Annual Learn to Lead Through Service Project held in Washington, DC on the 20th of October, at the Georgia Avenue Police Precinct #4.

As I look back on the first Day of Service project in Washington, DC, in October 2013, I saw how we planted a seed and it began to develop. At the second Day of Service in October 2014, we watched as the spiritual growth of the project started to mature. Then at the third Day of Service in October 2015, we had matured and everything went as planned. This year's project, the fourth Day of Service, was held on October 20, at the same location we have used for all four years: the Fourth District Police Department, in northwest Washington, DC. This day was somehow special. There was a sweet, sweet spirit that filled the Community Room that day.I was honored to be the emcee…

Bands of bright-faced middle-schoolers filed out from their police station meeting place, brandishing brooms and squeegees. They set off to beautify historic Georgia Avenue in the nation’s capital on Thursday, October 20.Coming from three schools in the DC and Maryland area, the 40 students had just had their minds fortified by several inspirational talks on volunteer service by representatives of WFWP USA. On this, the WFWP’s fourth annual Day of Service in Washington, DC, the obviously excited and enthusiastic students learned that one of the best ways to lead is through service.The mission of the annual service project—which gives an opportunity to students to sweep sidewalks and gutters and clean storefront doors and windows—is to help create an environment where young people can build character…

Serving Mother Earth

October 31st, 2016
Saturday, September 24 was National Public Lands Day, and Texans came out in full force to support the cause! Members of the Dallas, Texas Chapter of WFWP joined hundreds of other volunteers to attend our Mother Earth, cleaning and collecting garbage and recyclables from one of Irving's city parks.So many people came, especially young people from all over the city. It was a moving scene and a testimony that people really care about our environment. We were very happy to participate; and, at the end, we shared lunch and each received a free mug and a bag of goodies. In all, it was a beautiful experience with young and old, working together to serve our Mother Earth.

In honor of Women's History Month, the Elizabeth Chapter of WFWP initiated the "CARE PACKAGE PROJECT." The idea was to start a collection and fundraising drive to help homeless women in the community by donating personal hygiene and accessories such as hand sanitizers, tissues, toothbrushes, toothpaste, face towels, deodorant, soap, and scarves. The Association of Christian Evangelist immediately sent their financial donation together with several families and individuals. Others donated items to include in the packages. WFWP USA also donated bags and brochures. The campaign started at the beginning of March and lasted until the 30th. Then the drop-off was made at the end of the month to the recipient organization: the Elizabeth Coalition To House the Homeless, a non-profit organization helping the homeless and…

Women's Federation for World Peace Arizona Chapter's "Purse Project: Women Helping Women" was a resounding success! It started last year when we saw a picture on Facebook of a handbag filled with toiletries and essential items for homeless women. The WFWP Arizona Chapter decided to use that inspiration to help homeless women in the community and we decided to give our donations of handbags and purses filled with essential items to "Maggie's Place" on March 12, 2016, during Women's History Month. We created a flyer with contact information and a Facebook event encouraging women to collect and/or donate bags filled with toiletries, snacks, money, or whatever the donor wants to share with those in need. Our first donor was a nurse colleague named Lynda Peralta,…

On Saturday, February 13, 2016, the Northern Virginia Chapter of WFWP presented entertainment for around twenty-five senior citizens in a low-income senior residence in Woodbridge, Virginia. The event was organized by Mrs. Carmella Ciemny, NOVA WFWP Community Service Coordinator, and showcased the talents of young adults, their parents, and other members of the surrounding community including two Mormon missionaries. The goal of the event was to bring joy to the seniors. Because the residents had enjoyed the Talent Show the WFWP chapter had hosted in May of 2015, they had asked if the chapter could come again; so this is the second talent show NOVA WFWP has held at the residence. The event began with the Lake Ridge Fellowship House providing a chili lunch for…
