The South Korean representative of Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) of African Continent – a South Korean Peace organization, DAEHEE YEOM Danny has arrived in South Sudan to push for reconciliation through peace education.

“Our visit to South Sudan is to introduce love for peace for high ranking officials, and also bring some peace activities like peace education and youth empowerment programs right to the peace NGOs in South Sudan as well,” YEOM told journalists on Sunday at Juba International Airport.

He said that HWPL is looking forward to working with the government as well as peace loving citizens to bring about sustainable peace in the country.

 YEOM revealed that HWPL will be working with local communities including public and private schools.

 “We are actually targeting not one particular group or organization, everyone can join us, if South Sudan can lead in HWPL peace activities here, South Sudan can be such a good example of other countries in Africa or other countries in the world,” he said.

Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light was founded on 4 June 2013. HWPL facilitates comprehensive grassroots peace building that involves diverse voices of the community, leaders in education, governmental and religious sectors, as well as non-profit organizations and youth to create sustainable solutions and empower individuals and communities to be an integral part in global peacebuilding.

Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) is a South Korean peace organization founded in 2013 by Man Hee Lee. The organization’s primary goal is to achieve international peace through the drafting and implementation of illegally binding international law for peace.

HWPL’s activities include interfaith dialogues, peace education programs, and advocacy for the establishment of a peace treaty among nations.

HWPL has also been actively involved in promoting peace education programs in schools and universities. In collaboration with UNESCO, HWPL launched the “Peace Education Youth Camp” in 2016 to provide young people with opportunities to learn about peacebuilding and conflict resolution skills. The organization also publishes educational materials on its website for teachers to use in their classrooms.
