2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the International Year of the Family (IYF), and WYA is joining in the celebration! The United Nations General Assembly first proclaimed the IYF in 1994 to enhance awareness of family-related issues. This year, the 20th Anniversary of IYF offers the international community an opportunity to emphasize the important role of family.
As an organization that promotes the dignity of the human person, WYA is excited to celebrate the crucial role of the family. The family is the basic unit of society and the first school of humanity, where each individual first learns an understanding of intrinsic human dignity.
Check out our video below to find out some of the reasons why we think the family is awesome.
