Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Euphrates Chapters program

The centerpiece of Euphrates’ current efforts is our newest and fastest-growing program—a network of national and international Chapters that are learning about, and engaging with, the ‘Other’ in their local communities. In just two years, 25 Chapters have formed.

These local Chapters are doing the direct work of peacebuilding in their communities, in-cluding hosting film festivals and renowned speakers, organizing interfaith and Interna-tional Day of Peace activities, visiting local mosques and synagogues, holding discussions on Middle East foreign policy, human rights, and transformation, all with the intent of opening up deeply to the ‘Other’ in order to find common ground and see our latent One-ness.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Young adults

We lead trips to the Middle East for Americans centered on transformation and opening the heart to the ‘Other’. Participants listen to the stark narratives of every side of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, even when they find this task extremely diffi-cult and painful. In so doing, they discover a softening in their own attitudes to-wards their ‘Other,’ and found that by accommodating competing narratives, they not only open up space for others to do so, but are inspired to take this approach back home to the domestic political discourse currently taking place.

We support and promote the work of inspiring visionaries in the Middle East to provide channels for active, positive engagement with the region by highlighting their work through U.S. speaking tours and media engagements. Some of our recent Visionary of the Year awardees include:

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are aiming to end violence in all forms empowering and equipping citizens worldwide to bring peace to their communities, starting with themselves.

We train, connect, and uplift emerging peacebuilders through skills-building and training programs.

Euphrates has an extensive network of emerging peacebuilders and citizen-visionaries from around the world. We are a trusted community-builder, bridge-builder, and dialogue initiator. In 2020 we launched a program titled, "Peace Practice Alliance", which is a 6 month online class to equip, connect and uplift emerging peacebuilders. We also have a training institute in Cote d'Ivoire, West Africa.

Our organization has over ten years of experience in leading educational peace programs. We have led peacebuilding trips to the Middle East to deepen and develop listening, dialogue, and peace skills. We have partnered with a local Chapter leader to launch a peace training institute in Cote d'Ivoire. We have developed an extensive network of over 30 Chapters in 15 countries. We have recently undergone an extensive strategic planning process which covers the next three years. What's next is to launch an in-depth peacebuilder training program in collaboration with like-minded partners and to discover sustainable funding for our on the ground community of courageous peacebuilders.
