The Legacy of a Peace Camp for Middle East Girls

The Legacy of a Peace Camp for Middle East Girls

On this episode of Peace Talks Radio, we revisit the story of a non-profit
program called Creativity for Peace which includes a camp experience in
the high desert of New Mexico for adolescent girls from all sides in the
Middle East conflict. At the annual camp, t he girls speak their minds
and hearts about their own suffering due to the hostilities. Despite
being taught to see the other as the enemy, they learn to get along and
even be friends. More importantly perhaps, they learn important lessons
in conflict resolution. On this program, host Carol Boss talks with two
former campers, now young women, who have stayed with the Creativity for
Peace organization as young leaders both at the camp and actively working
for peace in their homelands. Palestinian Jwana Ghaleb and Israeli Jew
May Freed were back in New Mexico to help at the summer camp in 2012 when
Carol talked with them.
