Register for the “Femina Vox – Peace Education and Justice” Forum Here.The forum will be conducted in English with translation available in Spanish and French.
The forum will be hosted by Dr. Guila Clara Kessous, UNESCO Artist for Peace. Among other luminaries, she will interview Peace Education Program Director Willow Baker and Lumpka Ngxoli, a facilitator of the Peace Education Program in South Africa.
Explains Ms. Baker: “I think women should have a special role in all noble causes and especially in everything that promotes peace. Women are very active in the Peace Education Program because it’s about personal peace and growth. Discovering appreciation, choice, self-awareness and contentment can be a very liberating experience. Women often express that they have been transformed during the workshops, and many of them become facilitators to help others discover their inner strength.”
