After a rigorous, intensive 12-month evaluation process, we decided that effective May 31, 2013 Abraham's Vision will no longer be running programs.
Working with the Berkeley-based BTW Consulting, we learned some very valuable things, most importantly what we already intuited and knew anecdotally -- our educational programs are life-changing. For an overview of BTW's findings, see here. For a detailed article explaining the unique educational model we developed during our tenure, see here.
Founded in 2003, between September 2005, when we launched our first program, and July 2012, we graduated 413 students from our four intensive programs: Unity, Vision, Beyond Bridges: Israel-Palestine, and our Facilitation Training course. Whether we were working with students in the Balkans, Israel-Palestine, or the United States, the last decade has brought us countless fond memories.
We will forever be grateful to those of you who have been part of our community. Given that along with our programs we delivered countless presentations, workshops, and consultancies, we have been part of more than 10,000 lives since we opened our doors. Thank you in particular to our students, our educators and staff, our Boards of Directors, and our volunteers. Your support has been invaluable.
The educational experiment that was Abraham's Vision succeeded. Though the doors of our 'lab' have closed, the transformations that have taken place in our students will endure, of this we have no doubts. We look forward to watching these social justice activists continue to move all of us forward.
Peace be with you all.
