Approximately 1,500 people will be attending the two-day summit which will bring together the world renowned chief justices, religious leaders, ambassadors, African royalties, political leaders, women and youth representatives particularly serving for the Southern African Development Community (SADC) regions.

The summit will be the African chapter of the WARP Summit which took place in Seoul, South Korea in September 2014 by Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light, a parent organization of IPYG. More than 200,000 people and over 2,500 leaders from 170 countries gathered in Seoul for the cessation of war and world peace resulting in signing of the peace agreement, a much-needed step toward peace. The participants of the WARP Summit in Africa will also sign the Unity of Religions Agreement and Peace Treaty to enact an International Law for the Cessation of War.

A Korean Peace Advocate Mr. Man Hee Lee, the chairman of HWPL and founder of IPYG returns to South Africa to address the leaders and civilians to discuss the core issue of peace to define the right framework for the nation. As an eighty five year old Korean war-veteran who has experienced the atrocity of war first hand, Chairman Lee has travelled 16 times visiting more than 60 countries including but not limited to South Africa, Uganda, and Ethiopia, in the last three years together with Chairwoman Nam Hee Kim of International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG). HWPL has been working together through IWPG and IPYG creating the neutral platform for all groups wanting peace. All walks of life of South Africa will see the revival of the culture of peace throughout the nation.

IPYG has been endorsed by the African Youth Union and Honourable Malusi Gigaba, the Minister of Home Affairs of South Africa, who is the patron of IPYG. Through collaborative efforts, the IPYG has also partnered with the National Interfaith Council of South Africa (NICSA) and Interfaith Action for Peace in Africa (IFAPA) to hold such an unprecedented peace festival for the first time in the history of African Continent uniting all youths.

The peace dialogue at the WARP Summit in South Africa among the leaders of the SADC regions, Chairman Lee, Chairwoman Kim, and IPYG members will result in the practical solution for enacting and executing an international law to cease all wars. It is expected that the summit will make huge strides by reminding leaders and lawmakers of the global community of their responsibility to protect their citizens
