As the new generation of leaders, we must become active proponents of world peace. The voice of youth, the essential element to realize peace, is resonating throughout the world, guaranteeing peace for humanity.”
Chairwoman Nam Hee Kim said, “I firmly believe that the non-violence movement started by Gandhi can be fulfilled through the HWPL peace initiatives. As the Ramagya School became a Peace Academy, we will support and educate students to become the leading figures not only in India but also throughout the world. I sincerely congratulate you.” This innovative approach to teach students the practical steps of peace through peace education is catching on and being adopted by many prestigious institutions.

The Declaration was presented by Chairman Man Hee Lee in 2013 on behalf of women and youth of the world at the Peace Gate in Seoul. The Monument is now an emblem of world peace in Noida.
With the grace and life we have received – are we entitled to fight, kill and destroy one another? We cannot claim to desire peace and continue to provoke one another, causing conflict for the sake of valuing our own national interests above those of others. This is not a legacy we can leave to future generations … Of what use is a young life, born in our day and age, if it is thrown away without having had a chance to bloom? What price can compensate for the loss of a life? … We call on the heads of state of every country to sign an international agreement – a commitment to bringing all wars to an end. … The only way to stop the fighting and pointless tragic deaths is to stop fighting.
