Mission Statement

Our Mission: We are dedicated to rebuilding war-torn communities and making them safe.

Our Vision: A just and enduring peace in Israel and Palestine founded upon equal value, security, and opportunity for all.

Our Values: Ours is a holistic approach to peace-building, combining community-director rebuilding with grassroots and diplomatic advocacy.

We rebuild through cooperative civic action that puts those who are affected at the heart of the process.

We serve peacemakers from all sides and walks of life who take brave steps for justice and understanding.

Description

We learned early-on that to build in war-torn communities one must partner locally with non-governmental organizations that hold the trust of the local community and maintain the highest standards of fiscal and personal integrity. Here is a list of our partnerships and the projects we are developing with each of them:

We partner Combatants for Peace to build playgrounds, with the Rural Women's Association of Al Aqaba to build a kindergarten and next, a birthing center, with the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme to build homes, and a community center in Gaza, and with Other Voice-Sderot for a new project sourcing doors, walls, and windows for Gaza.

One of our past interns wrote the following: "I always talk about interning with The Rebuilding Alliance as one of my most important, challenging and formative work experiences, especially when I'm in interviews. You asked and expected big things of me right away, and I'm so grateful for that - coordinating a teleconference series, making phone calls to important peacekeepers, offering insights in team meetings, updating our internet presence. These are skills that I value so highly, and that I'm sure will be so important as I enter this industry that is entirely new to me. I would also like to stay in touch with you and The Rebuilding Alliance and help in any way I can in the coming years, whether through donations or volunteering my time when I'm back in the Bay Area."

Would you recommend Rebuilding Alliance?

My experience at the Rebuilding Alliance was a great one! I was a Project Management Intern for summer 2009. I learned so much from this position and was granted opportunities that I did not even imagine were possible. The unique project I was fortunate to help facilitate was towards the construction of a birthing center in Palestine. I worked with other non-profits in the area and spoke with international constituents to help conceptualize plans with the Rebuilding Alliance team. I gained communication and organization skills through correspondence and grant writing with individuals in many different sectors. In addition, The Rebuilding Alliance staff team was absolutely wonderful to work with. The workplace culture is great to be a part of, I felt like I was making a difference by helping with important peacebuilding projects. I would highly recommend getting involved with the Rebuilding Alliance. It was truly one of the most enriching professional experiences I've ever had!

Rebuilding Alliance is a great place made of people who want to help make a difference in an under served community. Also, it is a great place to be involved in a lot of aspects about the organization and its' work as well as learn different things.

I've been volunteer for the Rebuilding Alliance for almost a year and will continue to be. Working for the organization gives me a perfect opportunity to meet great people, learn from non-profit and for-profit professionals and attend interesting events like Green Festival or Craigslist Fundation Boot Camp. But what I like best about Rebuilding Alliance that it is a very friendly, welcoming, inspirational and creative environment to develop ones skill set.

Two of the best qualities interning with the Rebuilding Alliance are the pleasure of working with a group of people who are models of kindness, professionalism, and talent; and the opportunity of learning from the experience and insight that they have in regards to nonprofit development and organization management.
