Human beings everywhere around the globe have natural propensity towards success and progress in their endeavour and constantly seek fulfilment and happiness. It is this desire for fulfilment, happiness, success, and progress in man that pushes him towards hard work and creativity. However, often than not, the struggle to attain fulfilment and happiness in life is met with frustrations due to lack of wherewithal of carrying out the project. It could also be ascribed to the social structure such as bad governance, war, natural deserters, etc., which may hamper the free flow of activities geared towards ones success. In the presence of such frustrations, the victims can become disoriented, antisocial and antisociety. Such situation has serious consequences on peace in the world because this category of people often resort to different social vices like prostitution, intake of hard drugs, kidnapping, terrorism, armed robbery, suicide, et cetera, as the way of survival that spare doom to the society in which they live. It is to address this threat to world peace that, over the years, Fr. Edeh has distinguished himself in empowering people in different categories with little or no concern on tribe, creed, or nationality of those within his empowerment scheme. He has helped thousands of men and women to identify their God-given talents to attain fulfilment and happiness. Many of such people are now living happily on their own while a host of others are undergoing the training now. Interestingly, many of those who have successfully undergone the training in his skills acquisition centre are employers of labour today. Apart from this category of beneficiaries, there are over 12, 743 workers who are working in different establishments of Fr. Edeh and in this way fulfilled in their lives. Fr. Edehs remote conviction for venturing into human empowerment is to contribute his quota to the global project of world peace. It is his belief that world peace can only be attained when individual men and women are enjoying peace in their heartswhen hunger, poverty, diseases, frustration, illiteracy, and unemployment have been reduced to their barest minimum or even eradicated. This book therefore shows clearly how Fr. Prof. Edeh has achieved so much in empowering our teaming youths and this bringing peace in their hearts and thus peace in the world.
