As the name indicates, the Family Federation is based on three ideals – family, world peace, and unification.
The Family Federation for World Peace and Unification was first founded in the USA 31st July 1996 by Sun Myung Moon and his wife Hak Ja Han, and in many European nations soon after that.
The Family Federation was launched on the foundation of the Unification Church, a spiritual movement founded in South Korea in 1954. The original intention was neither to establish a church nor a new religion.
The Family Federation took over many of the activities and tasks of the Unification Church and the same basic teachings, but has a pronounced goal of creating a world of peace and unity based on well-functioning families.
