We have a 25-year history of fostering resiliency, life, and conflict resolution skills with over a million children from 30+ countries in conflict, including Israel, Ukraine, El Salvador, and inner cities in the United States. We train teen and adult peacebuilders to use cooperative play and community service to develop compassionate connections, support communities in breaking the cycles of violence that have plagued their neighborhoods for generations, and bring laughter and hope to children experiencing trauma, depression, and discrimination.
