The Holy Land Peace Fellowship Foundation (HLPFF) was established to promote and build the culture of lasting peace through fellowship and public service. From this vantage point, our goal is to build the bridge between divided communities and nations. Millions of individuals in a variety of regions and countries around the globe suffer from the harmful consequences of conflict. These include poverty, disease, destruction, and the loss of loved ones as well as fear and instability.
The following goals epitomize five (5) areas of interest that the Holy Land Peace Fellowship Foundation wishes to impact through its organizational efforts:
Education is key to building a strong foundation for society. The next generation must learn the skills and knowledge that will ensure a better future. But it is just as important to be able to educate people with respect to tolerance (religious, ethnic) and freedom (democracy and transparency) around the world. The HLPFF provides a forum where experts can speak on a number of issues, whether they be extremist ideas and elements in society or how changing weather patterns may affect the environment and bring about conflict. Understanding these forces and developing relationships among those who work for peace will help ensure a better future.
Health & Sanitation
Today too many people suffer from the results of disease and sickness due to inadequate health care and sanitary living conditions. By addressing these problems peacemakers can provide an effective way to counter radical and often misleading ideas. Ensuring the health of the world’s population can have a great influence on peace and building a sense of security.
Creating economic opportunities for those most likely to join extremist groups will dampen the appeal of radicalism. At the same time, individuals need the skills and knowledge to fill jobs. This can be done through greater engagement and training.
Rule of Law & Justice
Members of society need to believe that they can depend on the police and court systems to equitably enforce the law in a just manner. Community leaders and civil society as well as government officials need to instill respect for the law and the legal system.
Governance & Transparency
Governments require openness if they are to be effective in meeting the needs of all members of society. The people must have confidence that the government will look after their interests and provide the necessary certainty and fairness to ensure a better future and a sense of security.
