Participants spent the week learning and practicing five peace values:
After being immersed in these topics, learning from each other, and growing as a community, participants spent the last two days serving Syrian refugee children. As a result of the week, cultural tensions were broken down, language barriers were overcome and lasting friendships were built.
"BL4P was a spectacular experience for me for several reasons, one being that I wrote my first poem—about peace. It was an emotional moment for me. I believe in peace and I believe in myself more than before. I believe in my friends from different countries. I believe we can build peace everywhere because we are strong. We are not strong with our bodies and our power but we are strong with our feelings and our hearts and our souls." - Zubyeir (Student & Peace Leader)
