Ceeds of Peace – Raising Peacebuilders webmaster
Ceeds of Peace is a 360º approach to raising peacebuilding leaders. We support and build bridges between families, community leaders and educators to share resources and develop action plans to strengthen our communities and improve our children’s lives.
Imagine if we were to plant these “C”eeds of Peace around children and youth, and cultivate these skills in the adults who interact with them at home, in schools, and in the community, wrapping them in the practice of these skills everyday?
Ceeds of Peace provides teachers, parents and all adults the tools, workshops, action plans and support they need to learn critical leadership and peacebuilding skills, so they can then teach and practice them in their interactions with children and youth to raise a generation of peacebuilders.
“I am going to find ways to plant the Ceeds in my organization’s strategic plan and organizational culture.”

For our family it has helped create an environment where we can communicate openly and resolve our conflicts positively and with greater ease. At work, it has been invaluable in terms of getting different people with different backgrounds to resolve issues with concrete strategies.”
“As an educator, Ceeds of Peace workshops have connected me to people, ideas, and experiences that are extremely valuable both in the classroom and out in the community. These phenomenal workshops have helped me self-reflect on my responsibility as an early educator and take action as a peaceful global citizen.”
Naomi Rombaoa Tanaka, Educator
