BENEFITING: OUTWARD BOUND CENTER FOR PEACEBUILDING
Outward Bound Peacebuilding (OBP) challenges and inspires emerging leaders in divided societies to work together to build peace. Your donations will go to directly to support the Outward Bound 2013 Palestinian - Israeli Professional Women's Program.
OBP aims to contribute to a sustained shift in the way Israeli and Palestinian leaders in a wide variety of sectors including political, private, and civil society, relate to each other, their own communities and the Arab-Israeli conflict. The program is a shared experiential learning and leadership development initiative for recognized leaders from both sides of the conflict. A joint effort of Outward Bound Peacebuilding and locally based partner Search for Common Ground Jerusalem, the program empowers emerging leaders aged 25-45, from different sectors and backgrounds, to launch initiatives that improve their local communities and reach across the Israeli-Palestinian divide. Outward Bound Peacebuilding is currently implementing its 5th year of programming with women from Israel and the West Bank.
