Support 15 Bereaved Israeli and Palestinian Women Become Peace Leaders Today!
Until now, most of the facilitators in the Parents Circle have been men. This is especially true of the Palestinians. In fact, only 30% of our facilitators are women. We think that it is time for women to be given a chance to tell their stories to a public that badly needs to hear them on both sides. We have found that the women in our group, when allowed to tell their stories have a profound impact and create an emotional breakthrough in others and a healing effect for themselves.
We have launched our first ever Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign to raise $15,000 in support of an all new program that will train 15 of our bereaved, female members to use their stories to be leaders for peace building: the Women's Narrative Coaching Workshop. This campaign supports the training of bereaved Israeli and Palestinian women to share their stories of loss and hope so that they will be leaders in peace building in their communities and all over the world. Learn more - see our Indiegogo campaign page!
This workshop will professionally train 15 women over 6 months and includes:
• One-on-One narrative and storytelling coaching
• Hands-On Practicum in small, safe groups
• Facilitation Training Techniques for maximum impact and dialogue

Women, on both sides of the conflict, face significant obstacles in playing a role in reconciliation. These trainings will teach the skills needed to cope with the difficulties and challenges of peacemakers facing hostile media, and a public steeped in stereotypes and fear.
