100th Anniversary of the WILPF Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, The Hague NL 28-30 april 2015

 

Our life goal is to find inspiration in all that we do because the more empowered we are, the more productive we will be and therefore successful!. My participation in the 100th WILPF anniversary was one of those great moments of inspiration in my life as a peacemaker.

With Mrs Martha Llanos, Ph. D , Human Development Consultant “Being educated as a peacemaker should be seen as an essential part of human development and not just judged by its effects on the economic growth of countries. It is important to revalorize the ethical and cultural dimensions of the learning experience. From early childhood education should focus on the discovery of other people, lifelong learning, and involvement in community projects.”-Martha Llanos (PeaceAmbassadors)
