Celebration of the International Women’s Day in Moscow.
On March 5, 2023, Women’s Federation for World Peace in cooperation with Family Federation organised a celebration of International Women’s Day in Moscow.
It was held in cooperation with the district administration and many other NGOs. More than 150 people participated in the event. The program included speeches of prominent women (heads or representatives of different NGOs and social institutions), awards for outstanding women of the district and the Moscow city and a beautiful concert made by various children’s dancing and singing ensembles and professional poets and singers. It was meaningful that elder generation and children were doing their best to create the atmosphere of harmony and love together.
The main wish of all people is peace, protection and happiness of all people especially children.
We feel that such events are really needed in order to give hope to people in such a challenging period of our history.
Powerfully Her. Looking at the areas of our life that we want to improve.
As a new year approaches many of us start looking at the areas in our lives that we want to improve and set goals accordingly. We start working towards those goals only to find ourselves isolated, burnt out and stressed out. There is another way. In this free online event we will discuss the topics: forgiveness, self-love, and abundance as key factors, in order to attain our goals in 2023 with ease, flow and support. You will leave each session feeling inspired and energized and also have tangible tools that you can implement in your daily life.
