Call For Partners - BULA Asia Pacific Fellowship
We are pleased to announce that Peace Revolution, an international youth project of the World Peace Initiative, is planning to organize a regional fellowship for young people from member nations of Pacific Island region. The fellowship is expected to take place in the first week of March 2015.
This is Peace Revolution’s first fellowship for Pacific countries and the goal is to introduce the idea of inner peace and mindfulness through meditation to anyone who wants to know more about it. Meditation is a simple tool with immense benefits for overall wellbeing and can be practiced by anyone, regardless of age, race, religion, education.I am hereby writing to you, as we are looking for suitable and competent local partners from the Pacific region.
