Seeds of Peace fosters personal and interpersonal transformation in teens affected by conflict. An initiative of John Wallach, an American journalist, author and editor, the organization was founded in 1993 as a summer camp where children from opposite sides of conflict could get to know each other. As they share time together, the youngsters’ attitudes and perceptions change and they begin to respect and empathize with their peers.

There are now over 6,000 Seeds of Peace alumni uniquely positioned to lead change throughout the Middle East, South Asia, Europe, and the United States.
