IAYSP-DR Congo organized Character Education on 02 April 2023 in Bunia.
With the aim of popularizing character education among young people, in the city of Bunia, capital of the province of Ituri, IAYSP DRC in collaboration with the local youth council of the OPAS district held a conference on Sunday 02/04/2023, at the SARANG School Complex on the first chapter of character education: “What does it mean to be good.” Indeed, the representative of IAYSP ITURI intervened to signify being good to the participants that it begins by serving others, once it makes us happy and allows us to achieve lasting happiness. he then demonstrated that all the religions of the world spoke of kindness with different terms whose inner meaning remains the same. He summarized this through the definition given by the Founding Father of IAYSP, Dr. SUN MYUNG Moon, who defines kindness as the meaning of *_living for others. Hence, when we live for the whole, even our individual interests are guaranteed, he says. He also says that each of us should ask ourselves the most recurring and urgent question in our community, *what are we doing for others? He ended his presentation by emphasizing to the participants that we do not need to change our religion, our country, our race, even less our ethnic or tribal affiliation, Etc…. to be good, What we must change, they are our priorities, our attitudes, our behaviors and our character. The conference ended with the satisfaction of participants, who suggest attending again soon. The district chief, the municipal representative of the youth, the chiefs of the avenues (more or less than 16 avenues) and the young people were present at the event.
