21st Century is an era of cooperation of true partnership in which men and women understand that each is created to complement the good qualities of the other.
Today’s problems cannot be solved by the logic of power and politics alone, but require as well the logic of reconciliation, compassion, love, service and sacrifice on the part of women and men working together, not only for the sake of women’s rights, but to create a new home and society by realizing values which are indispensable to all human beings and by establishing the primacy of love and the idea of living for the sake of others.
Established as an international movement of women, we encourage women to understand and accept the moral authority and responsibility which has always been theirs, and to use their unique perspective and abilities as a guiding force on the morals and standards of conduct of their community.
Four vital missions and important tasks of the organization:
1. Assist women to grow and upgrade women’s overall image
2. Reconstruct family ethics (True Love Education—the Spirit of Altruism)
3. Instill appropriate values in youngsters and propagate campaigns on character education, gender education & AIDS prevention
4. Dedicate to international exchange works and promote world peace
