Seeds of Peace began by bringing together 46 Israelis, Palestinians, and Egyptians in 1993. Now, two decades later, over 3,000 young leaders and several hundred educators from the Middle East have graduated from our International Camp, including delegates from Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, and Yemen.
Seeds of Peace now works primarily with young Egyptian, Israeli, Jordanian, and Palestinian leaders. The program begins at our International Camp and continues with year-round local programs focused on the capacities leaders need most to be effective peace-builders. Seeds of Peace offers more targeted programs and advanced skills training as alumni move into their university years and begin their careers, leveraging their unique relationships, understanding, and skills to shift the landscape of conflict and peace in the Middle East.
“Seeds of Peace gave me hope that one day we’ll be able to live in peace—a just peace based on the elements of respect, dignity, and basic human rights and values for every Israeli and Palestinian.” — Adham (Palestinian Seed)
