It was a friendly meeting, in which Dr. Marjutka Hafnersi expressed her keen interest in what we are doing and her conviction for the need of dialogue and building of bridges with all persons. She was surprised to know that we had already received the patronage from UNESCO central office in Paris (Genfest, ed.).

We have briefly explained who we are and where the project started from. Before we ended our meeting, she also told us how happy she was to learn of the United World Project Observatory. It was her longstanding desire to spread positive news.
She also offered the greatest willingness to support those initiatives which we believe appropriate for this project and to help us out if we need to spread it.”

From Mexico: “During our meeting on 24th May with Dr. Guerrero, responsible for the Inter-Institutional Relationships for UNESCO office in Mexico, we presented the United World Project. He was very happy to see young people who wanted to do something for others, adding: ‘in these days, it’s not so easy to meet young people like you.’”
