Another organization that participated in the event was the Women's Federation for World Peace-Rwanda chapter.

The organization's president, Georgette Umubyeyi, called for equal and fair treatment between spouses if the family is to have peace. "There cannot be peace or democracy unless women's voices are heard as well as creating the opportunity for them to take on responsibilities."

Speaking as the guest of honour, the Egyptian Ambassador to Rwanda, Khaled Abdel Rahman, noted that peaceful solutions to family and national issues are key steps towards promoting world peace.
