As the Chairperson of the IFHE 2016 Organizing Committee, it is an honor to invite you to the XXIII IFHE World Congress 2016 which will take place from July 31 to August 6, 2016 in Deajeon, Korea. Under the theme of "Hope & Happiness," the XXIII IFHE World Congress 2016 is organizing a wide range of programs focusing on the role of the Home Economics in the pursuit of hope and happiness for individuals and communities now and in the future.

The IFHE is the only worldwide organization concerned with Home Economics.
