Words of Peace Global (WOPG) Words of Peace Global (WOPG)

Words of Peace Global is an independent charitable foundation set up by individuals inspired by Prem Rawat’s message of peace.

WOPG is composed largely of volunteers around the world who have experienced first-hand the peace and fulfilment of Prem’s message and want to help others who are interested to do the same.

WOPG’s main function is to make Prem’s message widely available through live events, online audio-visual materials and written articles. Growing from the initial efforts of a very small group of dedicated people in the early 1970s, there is now an expanding network of volunteers in 82 countries across Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa, and the Pacific.

Specifically, the organisation supports Prem’s live events in three key ways:

1. Funding events
Thanks to the donations of thousands of people, WOPG ensures that Prem Rawat can address public events around the world; third-party special events such as university lectures, business forums, and government bodies; and media interviews for print, radio, and TV.

2. Information
WOPG provides information on upcoming live events attended by Prem Rawat via the website, by email, and Facebook.

3. Helping people attend
The WOPG website – www.wopg.org – provides links to various ticketing sites where people can book a seat at Prem Rawat’s live events.

 

Raj Vidya Kender (RVK) Raj Vidya Kender (RVK)

Raj Vidya Kender is a non-profit registered charitable organisation with the two main aims of presenting Prem Rawat’s central message that peace is possible and providing humanitarian support to people in need.

The organisation has approximately 5,000 centres across India, from the smallest towns with just a few thousand inhabitants to massive cities such as Delhi. Its aims are closely aligned with Prem’s own ambitions; namely helping people explore their own human potential, the enjoyment of being alive and the possibility of experiencing peace.

RVK not only organises live events with Prem Rawat – in prisons as part of the Peace Education Program as well as huge outdoor events where attendees often exceed 400,000 – but also offers services for the poor and distressed such as free eye clinics and providing food for people in remote areas. It also supports other organisations which have similar charitable, social and philanthropic goals. These activities are supported by voluntary contributions.

The eye camps have helped over 95,000 of India’s poorest and most remote people, in 61 separate locations, obtain access to free of charge eye care. The program has benefitted from the involvement of 122 doctors, 305 doctors’ assistants and over 5,000 volunteers.

 

The Kifubon Project The Kifubon Project

The Kifubon Project focuses on providing books for social benefit. It works through the generosity of people buying and donating copies of books to the individual projects, which are then distributed by the teams to worthy recipients.

Bunya, a Japanese publisher, set up the Kifubon project in Japan and inspired book-sharing projects in the UK and elsewhere around the world.

The Kifubon Project has now grown into an international social responsibility project with contributions coming in from companies, organisations and individuals from across the globe. So far thousands of books have been donated and are being used in a wide variety of settings with the intention of helping create a culture of empathy and compassion.

To date, book donations have been made to every orphanage, disabled child care facility and prison throughout Japan; every prison in South Africa and to youth education groups in townships around the country; prisons throughout the United Kingdom; as well as prisons in Portugal and educational facilities and schools in Brazil, Uruguay, Cambodia and Malaysia.

The project continues to grow around the globe and warmly invites you to be a part of sharing this much needed message of peace and hope.

 

The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF)

TPRF has developed a variety of programs and initiatives with the aim of addressing the fundamental human needs of food, water and peace.

One of these, The Peace Education Program (PEP), has successfully benefited people in 81 countries and has been incorporated into diverse organisations, from police departments and prisons to universities, health care centres, corporations, and more. PEP is popular with correctional officials for its potential to reduce violence and recidivism, and the course has been offered to inmates at 462 correctional facilities around the world. Veterans and war victims are embracing PEP, and the Colombian government is rolling out the program at 500 public schools as part of its reconciliation efforts.

Each year the Food for People program (FFP) provides hundreds of thousands of nutritious meals to children and ailing adults in destitute parts of India, Nepal, and Ghana. The program improves school enrolment, academic achievement, health, and economic outlook.

TPRF also sponsors numerous other humanitarian initiatives, from eye care clinics and disaster relief efforts to peace forums and peace outreach campaigns that reach millions of people.
