International Work and Study Camp 2014 in Lebanon
Youth gather from 12 different countries, cultures, religions, languages and traditions at the International Work and Study Camp to learn about dialogue and peace-building. Participants have been transformed and hope that this transformation does not stop with them, but that it lives through them and through you as we all carry this message to our homes, offices, and our places of worship.
