MAKE A FRIEND, MAKE PEACE !!
The Peace Factory is a social media based peace movement, operating from Tel Aviv Israel.
Since 2012, we have created and cultivated hundreds of thousands of friendships between middle eastern people who are willing to give peace a chance: Iranians with Israelis, Palestinians with Israelis, Syrians, Egyptians, Muslims, Christians, Arabs, Jews… We believe that once you have acknowledged that the people ‘on the other side’ are just like you, you can never go back to blind hate.
Different from other organizations at which large amount of funds spent on operation with no real ability to measure or quantify impact;
The Peace Factory with its compact operation creates 50K new friendships every single year!
we ♥ you
The Peace Factory have more than 500k members in its Facebook communities.
Our Facebook communities bring Middle Easterners together in a friendly way and enable them to discuss about what brings them together.
With these pages (and many more) we are laying bridges of communication all across the Middle-East:
The Sandbox project is a compilation of short stories from individuals in the Middle East who share snippets from their lives. In theSANdbOX, people from the Middle East reveal their fears, hopes and dreams and the readers can return their empathy and support by clicking “FRIEND ME+” for a Facebook friendship.
The Sandbox project also creates direct connections and bridges by setting up spaces to meet in “chat rooms” that are set up virtually to allow for direct interaction. “Get to know the enemy for the weekend” is a project that is even stronger to set up relationships that guard against falling back into blind hate. The Peace Factory acts as a mediator.
