For 14 years, we have protected the magic of childhood for kids growing up under toxic stress. After nurturing thousands of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim children, we believe early education fosters lifelong resiliency. We also believe it mobilizes interfaith unity. Time after time, we have witnessed people who wouldn’t normally mix come together to help kids access a healing education.
We are reGeneration Education.
Reclaiming childhood. Seeding peace. Together.
We advance peacebuilding through innovative approaches to the education, development, and resilience of young children in crisis zones so they are able to imagine and create a better future.
Many children, especially those in Israel and the West Bank, are affected by toxic stress. Violent conflict and poverty are the most common culprits. Toxic stress harms a child’s life in many ways: brain development, academic achievement, mental and physical health. Even their likelihood of committing violent crimes increases. Perhaps the most tragic side effect is the stalled development of empathy- a foundation for peacebuilding.
We address childhood toxic stress for Jewish, Christian and Muslim children by:
- Partnering with and co-sponsoring trauma-informed schools for children in Israel and the West Bank
- Hosting conferences and trainings focused on educating children in crisis zones for Western and Middle Eastern kindergarten and elementary school teachers
- Initiating and building interfaith networks in the U.S. that model healing in the Middle East
