Today our participants had their second to last dialogue and ice breakers. Looking back on their very first day of icebreakers and comparing it to today, we can see how close this group of participants has grown.
During lunch, the XLs led discussions about going home and what that experience can be like for participants from all different backgrounds. The XLs have been working on their skills as facilitators and this is an opportunity for them to practice and to share their experiences after Hands of Peace with the current Hands. Later, they met in delegations to learn about the HOP programming for alumni, including seminars in the Middle East and the U.S. alumni club.
Afterwards, they wrote thank you notes to our many wonderful supporters who make this program possible.
