In August 2016, Building Leaders 4 Peace was born. We invited young adults from around the world to a small Turkish town, not far from the Syrian border. We wanted to foster a community that would be passionate about building peace, through love, forgiveness, reconciliation, and service - because we believe peace is possible.
Dec, 2017 | A big welcome to the newest local BL4P chapter from Izmir, Turkey. Derik, who has been a peace builder with BL4P since 2016 has assembled a great team made up of Ahmet, Aysha, Zeynab, and Ava. All of them already serve with volunteer organisations working with youth and providing health care in Izmir, but they were inspired by the idea of joining a community of peace builders in their city.
Sweater Giveaway in Adana
Dec, 2017 | Three cheers for Gülizar, Zeynep, and Dania. The trio of peace leaders teamed up to warm the hearts and bodies of refugee kids in Adana by giving away 100 sweaters as winter approaches. Most of the kids they reached out to are living with their families in tents or under unfinished roofs.
Your BL4P family is proud of you!
