Ambassadors for Peace

UPF-Ghana: Peace Education for Ambassadors for Peace/VIPs

Ghana-2021-12-07-UPF-Ghana: 2-Day Peace Education for Ambassadors for Peace/VIPs

Ghana—On December 7 & 8, 2021, the Universal Peace Federation (UPF) Ghana organized a 2-day workshop for its Ambassadors for Peace and prospective new members. The essence of the workshop was to make sure all members and aspiring new ones acquaint themselves with the objectives and values of the organization. This was in line with the sub-regional action plan which clearly specified that Ambassadors for Peace must be educated to serve as part of the training-of-trainers task force, in readiness for the mobilization towards national restoration by 2027.

UPF-Ghana secretary general Dr. Helen Osei, the IAYSP former president Rev. Tegha King Jr., and the Ghana national leader Rev. James Aidoo worked cooperatively to present the lectures.

The venue was the Family Federation for World Peace worship center at Mile 7, New Achimota – Accra.

The following topics were presented during the 2-day workshop:

Day One – Dec. 7:

  1. The Significance, Objectives and Perspective of UPF - by Dr. Helen Osei
  2. Principles of Restoration and Conflict Resolution – by Rev. Tegha King Jr.
  3. Spiritual Values as a Foundation for Leadership – by Dr. Helen Osei

Day Two – Dec. 8:

  1. UPF Character Education Initiative - Rev. Tegha King Jr.
  2. Family as the School of Love and the Blessing - Rev. James Aidoo
  3. New Heavenly Africa Launch (special lecture material compiled by Rev.

      Bismark Bamfo in US, heralding Mother Moon’s visit to Senegal) - Dr. Helen Osei

  1. UPF-Ghana Action Plan for Vision 2027 - Dr. Helen Osei

Participation  

The 1st day there were 30 people in attendance, both old and new members.

The 2nd day participation dropped to 26 because 4 people were members of the Event Management Committee, and they had to go and put finishing touches on the End-of-Year Assembly, which was planned for December 9, but had to be re-scheduled for December 21.

The content of some of the lectures, such as UPF Character Education Initiative and the Spiritual Values as the Key to Leadership, brought new enlightenment to some members who were listening to those contents for the first time. Some questioned and wondered why the government is delaying in recognizing and approving such a curriculum for the Ghana schools.

In closing, the participants made a humble special request that the secretary general should consider organizing the workshop again in the new year, bearing in mind especially those who were absent on the 2nd day. They also requested that the materials be made available to enable them to study more on their own. It was concluded that the secretary general will look into the request and notify everyone when the materials are available.
