What is the root of so many problems in today's world? Is there any remedy, any hope?

Working together, helping each other, and showing love to those who are lonely, downcast, forgotten, mistreated will change things around. It helps the ones who receive love as well as those who give it – a win-win situation. Selfless love can give us a new outlook on life and solve our personal problems as well as those in the world. “Change the World with Love” offers concrete ideas how to make this dream become a reality.



TEDx Talk “Change the World with Love”

What we are lacking are not resources, but the love to share them. The main change has to be in the heart, mind and attitude. Love is the only solution to greed, war, hunger, poverty, loneliness…

Interview with Benjamin Davidson, Houston, Texas:

Wolfgang Peter Schmidt exposes the DR Congo tragedy and talks about the great need there and how he, his wife and their team have established two schools for children in rural Congo. He unveils his new book: “Change the World with Love.”

What is the book about?

This book is a personal account of the author who lived in 14 different countries on four continents – including five years in India and ten years in Africa.

For the past 47 years, he has been working as a full-time volunteer, helping people live better lives.

Most recently, he and his team have built two schools in the “bush” in the DR Congo, offering free tuition for thousands of children – not a given in this country.


The proceeds of this book will support the school projects in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Wolfgang Peter Schmidt

Since my teenage years, I have been searching for a solution to the problems
that exist in the world and in my own life. When I experienced true selfless love for the first time, it was a turning point in my life. Since then – for more than 47 years – I have been helping others to have the same experience, in 14 countries
around the globe. For the past 25 years, I have been organizing humanitarian
and development aid projects, first in Eastern Europe and since
2000, in Africa.

I have lived in Africa for more than 10 years, mostly in the DR Congo, which
motivated me to write this book “Change the World with Love.” Most of the
people there lack the essentials of life. They need better education and
infrastructure as well as more agricultural and rural development.
The weaknesses of the industrialized countries, who put too much emphasis on materialism and money, need to be addressed as well. The main change has
to occur in the heart, mind and attitude.
The only solution to greed, war, hunger, poverty and loneliness is love.
