Going to Kids4Peace showed me there is no reason to think that we must live separately. We need peace.
Kids4Peace for me is a place where I express everything in my heart especially the violence that is happening between Israel and Palestine. Kids4Peace is my second home.
I am getting to learn about myself and how I feel around other people that are not welcome in my society. I know that every person can affect his/her people and society and can teach them the things we learn at Kids4Peace.
Peace is possible, but it is very hard to get. We worked on it a long time, and now we are listening and saying what is in our hearts.
The young nervous girl that I was at 11 has become a person who is much more aware and outspoken about the injustices brought about by uninformed and misinformed prejudice.
We are kids, but we can send the message of peace to other kids, and in the end we will find peace. Peace begins with children and fills the whole earth.
When you understand and respect my religion, you understand and respect the deepest part of me.
"Kids4Peace for me is a place where I express everything in my heart especially the violence that is happening between Israel and Palestine. Kids4Peace is my second home."
"Kids4Peace is building a bridge where there aren't yet any roads"
"Kids4Peace broke the wall of hate in my heart"
"At Kids4Peace, I was respected for my religion"
"Kids4Peace is my second home."
"To see the kids together like this is a little miracle"
"We are people who believe that something can be done”
"This is an opportunity to prove that extremists do not run the daily agenda in Israel but rather people who believe in dialogue and co-existence"
"With all the mutual demonization going on, it is especially important at this time to send my son to Kids4peace. This allows him to have personal relationships with children of different ethnic and religious backgrounds"
"To be involved with people from different backgrounds and culture – it is the biggest gift we can offer for our son. It is not a burden - it is an opportunity to develop skills to live in this complicated surroundings, and to be able to lead changes"
"The mission and philosophy of Kids4Peace paralleled our beliefs and that which we are teaching our son"
"If it wasn’t for K4P I might have just grown up with the idea of hatred in my mind, and without the idea of being peacefully active"
"At Kids4Peace, I learned so much about other faith traditions and myself. I learned about self-reliance, patience, kindness, acceptance, love, and friendship"
"Peace programs are usually a failure because they have a hidden agenda behind them. However, K4P has a good base. Everything is clear and open"
"This is a moment in the history of my children's generation, that provides a live example to what should never happen again. It must change. It will soon be their duty to carry out this burden."
"Violence is very loud. But we want to make our belief in peace louder. To set an example to end the violence and injustice in our land"
