In 2001, Seeds of Peace launched a program bringing together young leaders from Mumbai, India, and Lahore, Pakistan, to address tensions between the countries that have persisted since Partition in 1947. In 2002, the program expanded to include neighboring Afghanistan.
Now, more than 15 years into building the Seeds of Peace network in South Asia, over 320 young leaders and 50 educators have graduated from the Seeds of Peace Camp. Once home, Seeds participate in year-round local programs focused on developing relationships and skills that leaders need most to be effective peace-builders. Seeds of Peace continues to offer more targeted programs and advanced training as alumni move into their university years and then begin their professional careers.
