IWPG Peace Lecturer Training Education Begins for the First Time in DR Congo

What’s the best way to achieve peace? The issue of peace is the most important issue since humanity has been in it since now. This is one of the priorities of many problems that humanity must solve.

Peace is a necessary part of the world. In particular, in the democratic republic of the Congo, education and importance for peace seem to be more urgent.

Among them, the Goma region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo is located on the border of Rwanda and Uganda, and with dozens of armed groups, they feel the importance of peace. It’s not just that. Due to the interests of various races, civil wars large and small are constantly underway and policing is uneasy.

In February 2021, the Italian ambassador to the Democratic Republic of Congo was killed in a harrowing raid. In the lives of anxious communities caused by civil wars large and small, the importance and practice of peace seems paramount.

As a situation, women’s human rights are also vulnerable. Nevertheless, IWPG Peace Lecturer Training Education was conducted online through ZOOM on April 24, 2021 in order to create concrete ways to support peace and keep it.

The IWPG Peace Instructor Education, organized by IWPG Daejeon Chung-cheong Branch, is meaningful.
This is because of the active participation of group presidents who are actively active in supporting women’s human rights and peace not only in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of congo, but also in the Goma region of North Kivu and Uvira in South Kivu.

A total of four local figures from the Democratic Republic of congo attended the IWPG Peace Instructor Education (PLTE). Parousia, a journalist at Africa News in Kinshasa, and Darwin Mumete, a freelance journalist, were present, as well as Josephine Malamukono, group leader of the Goma region of Northern Kibu, and Stanislas Wonga Kamengele, project manager at Ferapad Uvira Asbl in the Uvira region of South Kivu.

They felt that peace was urgent in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and above all that peace education was a priority for women to raise awareness of local women in order to raise women’s rights. He was deeply sympathetic to the education and showed his support for the completion of the IWPG Peace Instructor Education.

The IWPG PLTE consists of a total of 10 lectures.
This is the first peace Lecturer training Peace of people from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and was educated on the theme of “My Values and the Beginning of Peace” in the first round.

The IWPG strongly supports the enactment of the “Peace International Law (DPCW), a practical and groundbreaking way to achieve peace, and supports and urges the declaration to be enacted into legal law, and promotes it widely in countries and communities through a variety of media. The IWPG Peace Instructor Training is part of one of the IWPG’s major projects, part of peace education, to learn why and what 3.7 billion women around the world need to be united for world peace.
