Official Announcement: 2006 Jordan Summit Cancelled

Dear Young Leaders,

The decision of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to host the World Youth Peace Summit was based on our strong commitment to world peace and abiding faith in the role that youth leaders can play in realizing this mission. Both the Jordanian Government and the World Youth Peace Summit still stand firmly committed to these ideals.

Unfortunately, after extensive consultations with Jordanian officials and core World Youth Peace Summit staff, the decision has been taken to postpone the Summit. We understand and deeply regret the disappointment that this will cause our Young Leaders and supporters who have rallied behind the cause.

The postponement was based on recent developments in the region that have created serious political uncertainties, which in turn make difficult the extent of planning and support-seeking necessary for the event. Under these circumstances, we believe that the current climate may not be conducive to fully realizing the enormous potential of the gathering of Young Leaders from around the World.

It is with a heavy heart that I deliver this news to you. Please be assured that my team and I will be working hard to find an appropriate venue and realize the dream of a World Youth Peace Summit.

Yours sincerely,

Bawa Jain

V-Stay, or Volunteer–Serve Thailand and Yourself, is a new program that provides a coordinated and systematic approach to volunteering in the tsunami aftermath. The first group of volunteers was placed in Phang Nga Province, Thailand, in April. For more details, email us at info@wyps.org or click here for the newsletter.

Water Tanks

The WYPS Secretariat facilitated the donation of water tanks to many of the Tsunami relief camps in the province of Phang Nga, Southern Thailand. By providing access to safe and clean drinking water, donors were able to make a solid and practical contribution to the post-tsunami aid effort. For more details, please email us at info@wyps.org or click here for more updates.

Each One Teach One

Each One Teach One provides educational support to young people who cannot afford to continue their study, by giving people with the opportunity to someone less fortunate. Sponsorship options vary from supporting a novice monk to a tsunami victim, with a major emphasis on long-term, comprehensive educational support.
