Founder’s Words

“The rise or fall of a nation depends on the young people of that nation. We are conducting national university student training for the sake of the spiritual formation of those students. We have to prepare the proper environment for the students to sprout and grow.”

Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon and Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon
