Côte d’Ivoire: IAPP’s Special Seminar
Prepared by UPF Côte d’Ivoire
On November 20, 2017, we organized a special seminar for members of IAPP Côte d’Ivoire, at the Ibis-Plateau Hotel, Abidjan. The theme of the seminar was “What philosophy of peace for the Parliamentarians to contribute to the advent of a lasting peace in Côte d’Ivoire”
Honorable LIKANE – YAGUI Jean, Member of the National Assembly, President of the IAPP Côte d’Ivoire, during his introductory message exhorted his fellow deputies to appropriate the philosophy of peace of the founder, Dr. Sun Myung Moon by the series training starting with the seminar that brought them together this time.
For three hours, the 25 parliamentarians received presentations on the Divine Principle, the Fall of Man and an overview of the Providence of Restoration. Speakers emphasized the importance of the family in building peace and how parliamentarians should become advocates for family values.
At the end of the presentations many questions were asked, which for the most part showed the interest of the Deputies to know more and how they could sanctify their marriage.
All were proud to receive their participation diploma. They were invited to take part in the Dakar summit from January 17th to 19th. Those among them who were not yet Ambassadors of Peace will be distinguished at a later date.
