Peace by Chocolate Story Told To Officials From 51 Countries
For the first time in our history, we visited Ottawa to present our story to Members of Parliaments from 51 countries across the globe at the Fourth Global Conference
of Young Parliamentarians entitled Young parliamentarians as drivers of inclusion that
took place in Ottawa, Canada, on 17 and 18 November 2017.
The conference was also attended by representatives of youth associations, indigenous communities, civil society organisations, private sector companies, and international agencies.
The founder of Peace by Chocolate Tareq Hadhad was on a panel on the first day of the conference and he walked the attendees through the story of Peace by Chocolate and the family's positive example to the world.
"No one chooses where to be born. Every young person should have a place to call home, it is a basic right. It is our duty to treat migrants and refugees with empathy, dignity and respect. As young people ourselves, we know that migration is an opportunity for individuals, for families, and for our countries. It can bring significant economic, social and cultural benefits to host countries as well as income to countries of origin", these were words from the final document of the conference in lights of Peace by Chocolate story.
The family of Peace by Chocolate couldn't be more honored and grateful for the kind invitation and will continue to share the story of peace and hope with the world because "One Peace Won't Hurt".
