SALT LAKE CITY, UT—The International WeLoveU Foundation hosted “Empowering Youth to Fulfill the Global Goals” workshop at the 68th United Nations Civil Society Conference with more than 130 people in attendance. The workshop ties in with this year’s theme of building inclusive and sustainable cities and communities by discussing innovative ways to involve the youth in volunteerism and highlighting their key role in our planet’s future.
“The WeLoveU Foundation and its volunteers are keen to remaining true to the core values that it was founded on, which is embracing the world with an untiring love of a mother,” said John Power, Spokesman of the International WeLoveU Foundation. “By setting this example to today’s youth and sincerely connecting with them, we believe they’ll take the lead and teach others how to help one another maintain our planet.”
WeLoveU volunteers from around the country also prepared three exhibits: The #BrightHaiti Experience, giving visitors a glimpse into the lives of vocational students in Haiti by reading under dim-light versus a solar-powered lantern donated by the foundation, reading the #StartDoingGood graphic novel and learning all about WeLoveU’s initiatives and passion to volunteer with the love of a mother.
WeLoveU has made a firm commitment to improve the quality of life through five initiatives: Blood Drives, Disaster Relief, Social Welfare, Environmental Protection, and International Aid. Its core values revolve around promoting unity and friendship among all people of the global village—beyond nationality, race, religion, and socioeconomic status—through impactful environmental and social welfare initiatives carried out with the heart of a mother. In addition, WeLoveU believes a mother’s love is the key ingredient to inspire change and improve the lives of many throughout the global community.
