Social Impact Activities
WFWP Australia has local chapters in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. State level chapters embrace women of all ages, faiths, cultures and nationalities.
We work in partnership with WFWP Chapters worldwide, and local stakeholders to contribute towards educating with values through the following Social Impact activities.
Peace Building Seminar Series
With four seminars held annually in Mount Waverley, Victoria. Each builds on the previous and explores the moral, spiritual and methodological principles that foster peace building.
Each seminar is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the philosophical principles of the founders of WFWP International, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon and her late husband the Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon. Explore a new model for peace building for oneself, one’s family and one’s community!
Melbourne Pasifika Festival and Charity Walk
Join us for our annual Pasifika Festival and Charity Walk, which raises funds to support our humanitarian service projects in the Pacific Islands.
Bring your friends and family and enjoy a fun day with food stalls, arts and crafts, and entertainment and fun activities organised by local Islands communities.
Supporting Sustainable Development Goals: Goal 14: life below water
Goal 15: life on land
Goal 17: partnerships for the goals
WFWP Australia volunteers come together during the 1st week of March to partner with Clean Up Australia to step up and clean up, and help to prevent suburban garbage entering waterways.
Volunteers also adopt a beach for International Coastal Cleanup Day on the 3rd weekend of September to clear garbage, and plastic particles from the beach sand.
Inspiring Women | Engaging Youth | Environment Sustainability
Faith Stories is a forum providing a cultural perspective of women in their faith. The intent is to facilitate community connection by providing a panel of multicultural women faith leaders who share a deeper understanding of their faith and culture, resulting in a breakdown of barriers and unfounded stereotypes that hinder community cohesion.
Mindful Meditation Retreat
The annual Retreat offers an opportunity to learn about stress management, how to meditate, and guidance from mindfulness professionals on the theme, Your Peace of Mind - an opportunity to rest, relax, regenerate and start afresh.
The Retreat is open to both beginners and advanced meditators.
This event are held in partnership between the Women’s Federation for World Peace (WFWP) and the International Centre for Inner Peace and Happiness (Nisala Arana), and supported by the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU).

The International Day of Peace is observed around the world each year on 21st September. WFWP State chapters hold an annual one-day conference to support and foster peace building within our diverse multicultural community.
Women’s Leadership Seminar
Women from different cultures gather for an inspiring three day leadership seminar at the beautiful Collaroy Centre, minutes from Collaroy Beach.
Women in general are busy and rarely find time for themselves, but are inspired to come together for three days to focus on improving their lives with the support of a powerful and skilful facilitator from India, Mrs. Madhu Sharma.
Mrs. Sharma has helped thousands of women, men and children during her leadership programs around the world.
