Review for Seeds of Peace, New York, NY, USA
Deep in the heart of Maine, the almost unknown little town of Otisfield just north of Portland, is transformed into an oasis, into a paradise of woods, water, and hills, that opens its arms to youth, not the traditional summer camp that busy parents send their kids to and call vacation, but a camp to which young adults come from the most explosive areas of the world.
For a short time Otisfield becomes home to Hundreds of young leaders, young adults from the most violent sectors of the world. Israeli Youths Play soccer with their Palestinian counterparts. Young Indians canoe with their Pakistani neighbors. Teens caught in the crossroads of decades of hostilities are brought together, to work together to play together and to search for answers together. South East Asian youth that have seen decades of war, Egyptian, Jordanian Afghan youth leaders come together with American Youth to break through cultures of explosive rage and violence, years of animosity and fighting, daily blood baths.
Young adults taught a language of hatred now for the first time can see their enemies up close, eye ball to eyeball, sharing breakfast, lunch, a marshmallow roast over a campfire, in competition not with guns and mortar but with racing, playing, running laughing and most of all a deep lesson that so many of us have yet to learn, that this planet has to be shared with those that do not share the same religion, the same nationality, the same race the same culture, the same politics that we have.
This small insignificant little town in Maine, plays perhaps the most significant role in global relationships. While the Halls of Parliaments’, and Congresses around the world, while the UN in its plush offices in Lower East Side, endlessly debate politics and economics, these children are learning it where it counts and how it counts.
Review for GLOBAL PEACE PARTNERS INC , Denver, PA, USA
Global Peace Partners, bridges the turbulent waters of political, religious, cultural and social boundaries through medical diplomacy. Taking the lead before disaster strikes, our Care Convoy delivers Search, Rescue and Medical Equipment to enable nations to be better prepared for the disasters growing in frequency and intensity around the world.
Currently Gifts in Kind in Medical/Rescue/Fire/Paramedic run about
Our Rapid Response Program (under development) will utilize the skills of Veteran Medics to move into a region quickly to close the critical 72 hour gap before rescue needs to be turned to recovery.
Our SAR program will solicit the agility skills of our native communities and provide an elite training in Search and Rescue to be offered on short notice to the global community.
Working behind the front of Rapid Response is the development of a Paramedic Training to be offered to any nation in the world, the core component that we have to work together, respect each other, beyond differences of political or religious opinion in order for this planet to remain intact.
Our Air University Surgery will work tirelessly to secure a safer saner world through next generation medical technology combined with the most advanced aeronautics, molded with the art of diplomacy and the heart of Compassion as we build the first complete surgery center aboard a 747-400 complimented with a 757 supply plane.
Global Peace Partners is a new NGO what it lacks in current funding is overcome by sheer faith that what is projected is the right thing to do, the right time to do it and its venues are urgently needed in a world that is coming apart at the seams, from pride, power, greed and corruption in high places.
