Building Leaders 4 Peace in the Middle East

Written by 

Earlier this year there was a new initiative started near the border of Syria. It was a simple concept done in a complex situation. They called it Building Leaders for Peace (BL4P). It was a one-week leadership / peace camp for young adults. The attendees were Syrians, Turks, Kurds, Iraqis and from Western Countries.

The schedule for the camp was based roughly around these themes:

  • Meet together
  • Share together
  • Train together
  • Serve together

This one-week was life changing for all involved. It tore down walls of hostility and racism and created true peace, with the attendees now meeting regularly in different cities to actively make peace in their communities. There is so much that could be said about this. I encourage you to watch the video and check out the Facebook page, as they continue on to set up many more BL4P's in other places.
