On the occasion of the United Nations International Day of Peace, UPF Indonesia conducted four programs at three different schools in Jakarta on Sept. 20 and 23, 2016 with a total of 250 students.
Programs 1 & 2 (Sept. 20, 2016): At Muhammadiyah No. 15 high school, Mr. David McLackland, Education Director of UPF Indonesia, taught the students “Universal Principles and Life Goals.” The Principal was so impressed by the program that he asked to conduct the same program for another class right afterwards.
