WFWP in North America

Leadership of the Heart and Family Life Education

Women's Federation for World Peace (WFWP) North America is comprised of the United States and Canada. WFWP North America focuses on two main areas: Leadership of the Heart and Family Life Education.

We believe that peace leadership is not about position or power, but about serving and caring for others. That is why we educate and empower women to use their unique talents to become compassionate, conscientious leaders, through our interactive workshops, leadership training retreats, webinars, and our annual National Assembly. This paradigm of feminine leadership also manifests in community service projects, benefits for the WFWP Schools of Africa, and flash fundraisers after humanitarian disasters. Like ripples in a pool of water, we hope to inspire many more on the importance and value of living for others.

Love, harmony and respect starts in the family. To encourage this, we hold self-help seminars based on family values, to provide positive solutions andĀ foster healthy relationships. These seminars range from character development for youth, marriage workshops for couples, and mending relationships between parents and children. We work to strengthen families as a foundation for lasting peace in the world.

WFWP USA uses the Bridge of Peace ceremony to resolve current pressing conflicts in the United States, including racism, marriage and family break-down, inter-religious strife, political division, and historical divides.

WFWP Canada hosts an Annual International Poetry Reading project to promote greater understanding of various cultures and traditions through the appreciation of respective artistic expression. Through this project, women's shelters, Aboriginal groups, and women and men of different religious, national, and racial backgrounds come together to share their desire for a united and peaceful world.

We believe that by serving and caring for others, building strong healthy families, and empowering each other across traditional barriers, we can resolve the complex issues of our society and build substantial peace.
