About Rebuilding Alliance

Our Mission:

Rebuilding Alliance is dedicated to advancing equal rights for Palestinians through education, advocacy, and support that assures Palestinian families the right to a home, schooling, economic security, safety, and a promising future.

Our Life-Affirming Vision:

To realize a just and enduring peace in Palestine and Israel founded upon equal rights, equal security, and equal opportunity for all.

Since registering as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in 2003, Rebuilding Alliance has been working with coalitions of people and groups around the world who are dedicated to helping war-torn neighborhoods rebuild and promoting citizen and diplomatic engagement, worldwide, to make them safe.  We started by partnering with Palestinian and Israeli Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) to help Palestinian communities rebuild and keep their villages standing  — and we still do.

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.

Our Values:

  • Rebuild homes, schools and communities in a holistic approach that builds peace, combining community-directed rebuilding with grassroots and diplomatic advocacy.

  • Stretch every dollar to seed endeavors that make a difference and grow.

  • Build trust with each rebuilding project and connect peacemakers with constituents and policy makers worldwide who will intervene to safeguard threatened communities.

  • Advocate for government policies based on international human rights law and international law.
