About Rebuilding Alliance

Rebuilding Alliance is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that works with a coalition of people and groups around the world dedicated to helping war-torn neighborhoods rebuild and promoting citizen and diplomatic engagement, worldwide, to make them safe.  We start by partnering with Palestinian and Israeli Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) to help Palestinian communities rebuild and keep their villages standing. 

Since our launch in 2003, Rebuilding Alliance has been amplifying the voices of Palestinian and Israeli peacemakers and their communities. Together we are a significant voice for recognition of planning rights, village-centered rebuilding and human rights. 

·      We believe that if our world is to meet the big challenges that face us at this time in history, we must make peace in Israel and Palestine.

·      We believe a child’s life can be changed for good by rebuilding her/his home and neighborhood.

·      We believe construction is the best response to destruction, that rebuilding projects ease trauma, build trust, strengthen peacemakers, advance law, and press officials forward in tangible ways.
