I want to start with a reference to a verse in the Koran. Chapter 6 verse 32 ‘God tells us whoever revives the soul of a human being, it is as if he has revived all of humanity. Whoever kills the soul of a human being, it is as if he has killed all of humanity.’
Two verses of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) ‘Whoever removes the obstacle from the path does an act of charity.’
‘A person in the life after his work has not finished through three channels. If a child prays for him. An educational institution that he left behind. A charitable institution and good deeds that he left behind.’ His Holiness, the late Father Moon has subscribed to all three good virtues I just mentioned.

For the past five years the United Peace Federation have been presenting Youth Achievement Awards to young adults (usually between 18-30 years old) who are striving to make a difference in their communities. Held in the Houses of Parliament, the event celebrates the voluntarism of young people and recognises their efforts, encouraging them and others to keep doing good and going beyond what is expected of them.
What is the Mission of the Universal Peace Federation (UPF)?
Through forums, seminars, conferences, service programs, and interfaith peace initiatives, the Universal Peace Federation builds a global network of peace builders to contribute to a world of sustainable peace in which everyone can live in freedom, harmony, cooperation, and prosperity.
