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.
The World Youth Peace Summit welcomes all responses to this announcement. Please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Secretariat Duties of the World Youth Peace Summit are performed by the Millennium World Peace Foundation (MWPF), a not-for-profit organization registered in Thailand. The MWPF also conducts social venture projects in Thailand and Cambodia and a global campaign to get youth engaged in peace awareness.

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 email@example.com or click here for the newsletter.
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.

Each One Teach One
