The founders of the Family Federation for World Peace
(which is a project of the Unification Movement) are the Rev. Sun Myung
Moon and his wife, Mrs. Hak Ja Han Moon. They provide, as a couple,
spiritual and moral leadership of the Federation. In this they are
striving to exemplify the ideal of ‘true parents' not only for the FFWPU
but also for the wider family of humankind. They teach that the family is
a place where we can most fully meet God, experience His true love, and
learn both how to love others and how to be responsible as His sons and
Statement Of Purpose
The Family Federation for World Peace (FFWP) is
established to regenerate the family’s moral leadership as a foundation
for the good society.
Healthy families are the foundation for healthy, well-adjusted nations
because the values that promote peace in the world community are a direct
extension of the values that promote peace within individual families.
The family is the school of love. Within it we learn about the different
dimensions of love, as a child, as a brother or sister, as a husband or
wife and as a parent. How we learn these lessons largely determines how we
relate to people in the global family and how we fulfill our
responsibilities as citizens of our nations and of the world.
Promoting the development of such families is the central mission of the
Family Federation. specifically, the FFWP promotes the responsibility of
parents to care for and love their children; to guide them to the highest
moral, physical and intellectual standards; and to protect them from abuse
and exploitation. The responsibility of husband and wife is to maintain
purity in conjugal love, upholding the ideal of marital fidelity, and the
responsibility of children is to love and respect their parents. a society
made up of families that follow this standard has the capacity to overcome
even the deepest and most pervasive social problems.
Now that the world is no longer divided into opposing ideological camps,
world leaders have an increased opportunity to focus on the humanitarian
issues of domestic violence, youth problems, child and spousal abuse,
unwanted pregnancies--problems which are common to every country on earth.
The FFWP is a global; non-governmental organization that is politically
nonpartisan. It is ecumenical in its religious outlook, recognizing and
affirming that spirituality, as expressed in the world’s different faiths,
plays an essential role in those values that sustain strong families.
The FFWP will conduct its work alongside and in cooperation with other
national and world organizations recognized and respected for their work
in dealing with the issues and problems outlined in the preceding
The organization will be involved in educational and charitable programs
and activities that involve the full participation of people of good will
representing all nations, races, religions and political persuasions. Such
activities may include:
Convening scholars, and experts to advance and deepen the understanding of
family, marriage, and their relationship with the development of the
individual and society.
Encouraging and/or sponsoring programs of education and counseling for
troubled marriages and youth, with emphasis on familial and parental
responsibility and its impact on society.
Supporting educational seminars on the prevention of sexually transmitted
diseases, through a focus on values that promote moral living habits,
sexual abstinence until marriage and fidelity within marriage.
Sponsoring cultural programs, family service projects, and ongoing
alliances with like-minded organizations to bring together races and
cultures in acts of reconciliation and healing.
Publishing literature, including newspapers, magazines and newsletters,
and otherwise disseminating information through television, video and
audio tapes and electronic bulletin boards.
