2018 SPRING BENEFIT (NEW YORK) PHOTO BY NATURAL EXPRESSIONS

DEAR FRIENDS, What a remarkable year 2018 was for Seeds of Peace! The commemoration of our 25th Anniversary continued with countless highlights, including innovative new programs; the launch of new alumni initiatives; our growth to new regions, including new parts of the United States; a sold-out Spring Benefit Dinner featuring Vice President Joe Biden; and an ambitious and successful $25M fundraising campaign which lays the foundation for the next phase of Seeds of Peace’s commitment to changemakers around the world. The work of GATHER, including this year’s remarkable Fellows, demonstrates clearly how our investment in social change and entrepreneurship creates powerful new tools and new networks for transforming conflict.

And in response to the divisiveness plaguing so many communities, our team has also been proud to lead local opportunities for dialogue and engagement across lines of difference—in schools, companies, and organizations looking to lead on diverse issues, rather than be separated by them. Our world certainly needs more opportunities to come together, and I am proud to see us leading change in new ways. As always, we remain deeply grateful to our community of alumni, staff, and supporters who are willing to challenge the status quo and fight for a new reality—and who embrace this work with courage and conviction. In appreciation,

LESLIE LEWIN (EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR) 2018 Annual Report | 3


MISSION AND APPROACH

WHAT WE DO ... Seeds of Peace inspires and cultivates new generations of global leaders in communities divided by conflict. We equip them with the skills and relationships they need to accelerate social, economic, and political changes essential for peace.

HOW WE DO IT We provide rare spaces where people come together across lines of conflict or difference. We promote dialogue that challenges assumptions, fosters empathy, and builds conviction. We support our alumni to lead change. 4 | 2018 Annual Report

DEVELOPING LEADERS CAMP

Our leadership development programs begin in the woods of Maine

The 2018 Seeds of Peace Camp Program brought together 349 young people and 40 educators representing 15 delegations. Fifty-eight of those young people came for their second year as Paradigm Shifters, attending an advanced leadership dialogue program to deepen their understanding of personal and structural conflict and better understand themselves. The first three-week session brought together participants from Egypt, India, Israel, Jordan, Pakistan, Palestine, the United Kingdom, and the United States to engage in dialogue on either the Middle East or South Asian conflicts. During the second session, young people and educators from Maine, Syracuse, New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago engaged each other in dialogue about structural and interpersonal conflict in the US and focused on topics such as class, race, gender, power, and privilege. In each session, participants explored conflict on personal, interpersonal, and societal levels by sharing their own experiences and competing historical narratives. The goal is not to come up with solutions, or prove one side right or wrong. Rather it is to develop essential leadership qualities: strengthening one’s voice, developing critical thinking, fostering respect and empathy, learning how to actively listen. All with the ultimate goal of deepening participants’ sense of responsibility to lead change in their communities at home. It is at Camp that most of our alumni begin their leadership development journey with Seeds of Peace. 6 | 2018 Annual Report

DEVELOPING LEADERS LOCAL PROGRAMS

Leadership development programs continue year round in the Middle East, South Asia, Europe, and the United States Camp is the starting point on the journey from personal transformation to becoming an agent of change. After Camp, Seeds (as graduated campers will forever be known) take part in skill-building programs back home. In 2018, Seeds of Peace offered nearly 100 local programs that helped increase understanding of core conflict issues by region, trained Seeds in dialogue and facilitation, and encouraged activism and changemaking in their local schools and communities. Select highlights include: • A four-day Borders Seminar for 47 Israeli, Palestinian, and American Seeds that examined the boundaries separating Israel, Syria, and Lebanon and how they shape realities and perceptions. • A six-day interfaith camp in Lavasa led by Indian Seeds for 50 high school students from different religious backgrounds. Participants worked to better understand how religious polarization leads to mistrust and violence. • Dialogue and facilitation trainings in Maine, London, Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles, Syracuse, Mumbai, and Lahore to deepen Seeds’ understanding of the dialogue process and equip them with skills to better address the unique challenges facing their communities. • A four-day mediation and negotiation seminar in Nazareth led by Harvard Law School faculty for 40 Palestinian, Israeli, American, and UK Seeds. • Tree planting to fight deforestation and rising temperatures in Pakistan organized by 28 Seeds, Educators, and supporters in Lahore. • Youth Identity Summit hosted in Maine on identity, power, and privilege. Largely organized by Seeds, this two-day Summit for 360 students focused on sparking meaningful conversations on identity, diversity, and community. 8 | 2018 Annual Report

ACCELERATING IMPACT CONVENINGS

We create rare spaces for alumni and their peers to come together and take action CONVENINGS

GATHER aims to deepen and accelerate the efforts of alumni and other changemakers to transform conflict in and between their communities. It is designed to address the unique needs of those working in areas of conflict: providing opportunities to imagine and think differently in order to combat old patterns; offering inspiration and energy to take action; and building a deeply-connected community. Convenings create those rare spaces for alumni and their peers to come together and find inspiration and partnership. They provide connection that is hard to find in regions of conflict, as well as the conversations necessary to spark ideas. In December, more than 70 entrepreneurs, artists, educators, activists, and policymakers joined together in Athens, Greece, to reflect on their work, share best practices, and dig into questions around the systemic levers of change. Changemakers from Afghanistan, the Balkans, Cyprus, Egypt, Israel, India, Jordan, Pakistan, Palestine, the UK, and the US participated in four tracks: economic, political, social activism, and arts and education. Participants built skills around storytelling and resource development and, perhaps most importantly, they built and strengthened community. Workshops led by experts in the field included introductions to impact investment and nonprofit fundraising, effective negotiation, putting the ‘story’ back in storytelling, using narrative to move from ‘action-inhibition’ to ‘action-enabling,’ and rethinking for-profit biases. 10 | 2018 Annual Report

ACCELERATING IMPACT FELLOWSHIP

We invest in high-impact leaders working for change FELLOWSHIP

Seeds of Peace worked throughout 2018 with its third class of GATHER Fellows—16 changemakers whose work tackles personal, interpersonal, and systemic challenges contributing to conflict in their communities. Fellows received personal coaching, as well as other types of support, to bring greater visibility and sustainability to their work and help them widen their reach and deepen their impact during months of intense project-building. They also gained access to a small pool of grant money, and participated in online skill-building workshops and trainings. Fellowship projects included ones that: • humanize and support refugee children • foster economic development among Palestinian citizens of Israel • target gender-based violence in Egypt • offer arts therapy to heal trauma in Palestine • build schools designed to empower girls and further their potential in Pakistan • create affordable solar kits for marginalized Israeli and Palestinian communities • bring attention to marginalized communities in India • use children’s books to bridge divides in Cyprus • build interfaith understanding in Iraq and Jordan • develop a new public school model in the United States Learn more about the GATHER Fellows and their ventures at www.seedsofpeace.org/fellows

CREATING ENVIRONMENTS FOR CHANGE

Working with educators and others, we create environments that support changemakers In addition to developing leaders, Seeds of Peace works with educators and local leaders from the schools and communities in which Seeds live in order to support, sustain, and multiply their impact. This is done by offering transformative learning experiences geared around personal and professional development for educators. In 2018, for example, 19 educators from the United States participated in a course on best practices for educating in a diverse democracy, and Seeds of Peace educators offered year-round daily programs for hundreds of Palestinian children in Gaza through the Shijaeya Community Project. Twenty-one Palestinians and Israelis graduated from Seeds of Peace’s nine-month intensive professional dialogue and facilitation certification course in Jerusalem. Participants engaged in dialogue with one another, while at the same time learned how to facilitate it—and in the process gained a deep understanding of each other’s narratives. Course graduates had the opportunity to facilitate dialogue groups at the Seeds of Peace Camp, in addition to convening groups locally. Seeds of Peace is also working around the world to share its internationally tested approach for dialogue and leadership development. This work engages communities in transforming conflict through dialogue on topics of race, ethnicity, class, and power, and challenges how organizations and communities can build more inclusive cultures through dialogue. In 2018, Seeds of Peace grew its sphere of influence by working in the UK, Sweden (UNG Dialog), Arkansas (Clinton Presidential Center), and several independent schools in New York City. 14 | 2018 Annual Report

SPECIAL EVENTS

Supporters raised funds and awareness Throughout 2018, a series of events were held to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Seeds of Peace and to build support for the organization’s expanded programming. In May, more than 1,000 friends and Seeds of Peace alumni came together at Chelsea Piers in New York City for the 25th Anniversary Spring Benefit Dinner. Vice President Joe Biden, recipient of the 2018 John P. Wallach Peacemaker Award, stressed the importance of the organization’s mission, and five Seeds who are courageously working for change in their societies reflected on how their Seeds of Peace experiences inform who they are today. Other highlights of the event included performances by Late Night host Seth Meyers and Hamilton star Mandy Gonzalez. The evening was an extraordinary success, raising $2.7 million. Innovating for Social Change in Conflict Areas, a symposium held at Facebook’s New York headquarters in May, brought together Seeds of Peace alumni, business leaders, social entrepreneurs, and philanthropists, and showcased the social, political, and economic impact Seeds are having around the world. A concert in New York City featured renowned musicians David Broza, Peter Yarrow, Noa, and Mira Awad. Each performed and shared stories about the unique role that music and the arts play in social change. All four have made peace activism a major part of their life. They were joined in concert by a number of emerging musical talents. An event in November for our London community featuring Seed speakers and a discussion on Middle East peacebuilding closed out the anniversary celebrations. 18 | 2018 Annual Report

� IF I HAD NOT BEEN TO SEEDS OF PEACE, I WOULD NOT HAVE STARTED THE SCHOOL. The problem we are solving is actually the problem of Pakistan. It's a third-world country, which is in a circle of violence, of poverty, one of three countries in the world to still have the polio virus. We have a nuclear weapon, but still don't have enough food to feed our people. That really made me think, how can we solve this problem? What is the one magic bullet that we can use and solve all of these problems? And the only solution I can see is education of women.

IT IS NOT EASY TO BE ON THE RADICAL END OF THE OPPOSITION. The amount of hatred being spread in my society is what keeps me up at night. It’s what takes me out to the streets to protest. It’s what takes me to the Knesset to try to fight to promote opposite agendas. My whole being is political, and when I’m not in the parliament, I’m still part of different movements that try to bring about change. I find it important not to lose connection with people who don’t agree with me.

� WHERE CAN I EFFECT CHANGE THE MOST, OR CREATE THE MOST IMPACT? STORYTELLING. Art can be used to transform societies. It spawns dialogue, spawns controversy ... it creates conversations that eventually become social or political movements, that eventually becomes a conversation on parliament floor, that eventually becomes policy. And that eventually becomes a reality. We refer to entire segments of history by artistic movements.

” I LISTEN TO PEOPLE’S STORIES SO INTENTLY THAT THEY BECOME A PART OF ME. THEN I TELL THEM TO OTHER PEOPLE. My curiosity is satiated, but more than that, I get a larger perspective. I magnify voices when I am a journalist. I know if I talk to you and hear your story, it becomes a part of me, and that’s what I see myself as ... a receptacle of stories, someone who’s compiling these stories, putting them together, and trying to make sense of the world. It’s impossible to make good decisions without understanding the truth or objective reality.

” 25 YEARS AGO, I WAS BORN IN A REFUGEE CAMP AFTER MY PARENTS FLED SOMALIA. But then, a miracle happened. After years of feeling hopeless, the UN selected our family for resettlement to the United States. As I began to understand English, l was made to feel that coming to America as a refugee is the worst thing you can be. All of the ignorant, negative stereotypes were hurled in my direction. A small, negative voice developed in my mind. It said, ‘You are nothing. You deserve nothing. You are a burden to people; you are worthless.’ But then another miracle happened. I learned about Seeds of Peace. In the dialogue hut, I was given the space to unbottle all of the things I had bottled up over the years. I was made to feel that I was enough, and that my difference was beautiful. For as long as I walk this earth, I plan to keep what Seeds of Peace made me feel in my heart and use it as a hope for what this world can one day become.

” WHEREVER I HAVE BEEN, I THINK ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN MOST MARGINALIZED WITHIN THAT COMMUNITY. People who do not have any voice. Living in war in Afghanistan and enduring the Taliban time; not being able to attend school because I was a girl, and actually not knowing why I was not allowed to go to school; having these questions as a young person ... that’s what really got me thinking. But then coming to Seeds of Peace made me question these issues a lot more and think about different political aspects of it. I always find myself speaking up for the most marginalized people, whether that has been education for girls in Afghanistan, or women’s rights in Afghanistan. I’m working on migration issues and rights of the refugees right now.

25th Anniversary Campaign

OUR STRATEGIC VISION Seeds of Peace tomorrow Seeds of Peace has an ambitious vision for the future—and we thank you for being a part of it. You joined us as we built on our 25-year history, accelerating the leadership of this extraordinary group of young people and educators who are advancing the economic, social, and political changes essential to peace. Your investment in Seeds of Peace supports new generations of leaders who have the courage to engage, the skills to transform conflict, and the ability to bridge divides. Seeds of Peace was established in 1993 on the principle that while treaties are negotiated by governments, peace is made by people. John Wallach believed that achieving enduring peace requires profound transformation among people, not just transactions on paper. As the years go on, we will continue to need your help to make good on our investment in people. Bader Philanthropies Vivek J. Bantwal and Sarika Singh Richard A.

Over the next decade, Seeds of Peace will focus on broadening and deepening our core programs, including in the Middle East, a region whose youth represent real change, hope, and promise. We’ll also continue to focus on the GATHER initiatives, an important building block in sustaining relationships with our 7,300 alumni. Additionally, we’re expanding our new United States Program to address an increasingly fractured American society. These developments require us to significantly increase philanthropic support from individuals, foundations, and corporations, as well as earned revenue. Our goal has been to raise $25 million during our 25th Anniversary year and create a platform for sustainable growth over the next five years. We give special thanks to those who have already made multi-year philanthropic commitments to Seeds of Peace in the past year, and welcome new supporters to this growing list of individuals and organizations: John and Mary Ellen Mangano† Helen and Carl B.

EVER SINCE I WAS A CHILD, POLITICS WAS AN INTEGRAL PART OF MY LIFE. When I started elementary school, we had a segregated system where the Serb children would attend schools in the morning, and the Albanians, which includes myself, would go to school from 5 to 8 p.m. So that’s when I started to ask questions, like why do I have to go to school in the evening, especially during winter when it was completely dark and sometimes the power would go off so we would study with candles and have no heat? Why is this difference being made based on ethnicity and what is its purpose?

PLANNED GIVING

Your will or trust is a reflection of your values. A gift by bequest through your will or living trust, or a gift through a retirement plan beneficiary designation, will create a legacy of hope and opportunity for future generations. A legacy gift reaffirms your belief that peace is indeed possible and sustainable. Many supporters choose to leave bequests in their wills or trusts. You may also name Seeds of Peace as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, life insurance

policy, or brokerage or bank account as a generous way to support our shared vision. As you create or review your long-term financial plans, we hope you will consider creating a legacy of support for Seeds of Peace and the young leaders who are striving to create a peaceful and inclusive future. If you’ve included Seeds of Peace in your plans, please let us know. If you’d like to learn how to create your own legacy gift, contact Lele LeVay at (212) 573-8239 or llevay@seedsofpeace.org.
