Dear Friends:
This has been a difficult but productive year for Seeds of Peace. Recent developments on the Israeli-
Palestinian front have created some hope that the situation will improve in the coming year. In any event, the
work that we do will continue to be of critical importance. Regardless of whether political agreements are
reached in the next several years, peacemaking is a generational proposition. In essence, it depends on the
transformation of attitudes of individuals and the creation of trust between them. Peace and reconciliation
can’t be negotiated or legislated; it must be painstakingly developed through changes in behavior and atti-
tude. That is why Seeds of Peace is so important.

As we carry on our mission in the next year, several key issues define our agenda.

     First, the absolute necessity of regionalizing our programming. The miracle in the Maine woods is
     a remarkable one; but unless it is reinforced, in large part, in the actual conflict areas, it will remain
     “miraculous” and not become a routine part of these young leaders’ lives. The key to Seeds of
     Peace’s success, pure and simple, is follow-up. Indeed, the philosophy that Seeds of Peace embod-
     ies must survive in the harsh political and security realities where these young people live. This
     means in part working unilaterally with our graduates within their own communities as well as
     bringing them together. Our Seeds must gain respect and legitimacy in their communities. This
     means involving them in school presentations, community service projects, and expanding our
     reach to parents, siblings and friends.

     Second, we must also concentrate more on our older graduates, those Seeds who are 18 through
     their mid 20’s. After all, it is this group – farthest removed from the memories of the initial camp
     experience – that are most at risk and yet present the greatest potential as they get off on their
     career paths. Creating opportunities for them including internships, seminars, work study programs
     and, above all, helping them find good jobs in their own societies, rather than abroad, is critical to
     our success.

     Third, we must place a much greater emphasis than we have in the past on evaluating our programs –
     not only with the objective of demonstrating their viability, but learning how those programs can be
     improved. By the spring of 2005 we will have available the results of a study conducted by a high-
     ly respected research and evaluation firm which is now engaged in surveying 10 years of Seeds
     graduates. Those results and the reunion we have scheduled for 2005 in Maine for over one
     hundred of our 1993-1998 Seeds should provide a clear sense of direction for the future.

Finally, let me take this opportunity to thank my colleagues at Seeds, the board of directors, and all of our
supporters for the time, effort, and resources that you have put into making our work such a success. We
could not have accomplished what we have without you.

                                                                                                     Best Regards,




                                                                                               Aaron David Miller

                  International Camp
                  Seeds of Peace held its twelfth summer season in 2004 and welcomed 483 future lead-
                  ers to the woods in Otisfield, Maine. Over three sessions, close to 300 Arab and Israeli
                  Seeds from the Middle East participated in the Seeds of Peace International Camp. The
                  pilot program Beyond Borders brought new delegations from Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait
                  who joined youngsters from Egypt, Jordan and Yemen in a groundbreaking session with
                  teens from six American cities (see page 9). The 42 South Asian Seeds from India,
                  Pakistan, and Afghanistan as well as the 24 Seeds from divided Cyprus and the domestic
                  Maine Seeds program also experienced the transformation that the Seeds of Peace program
                  provides. Each Seed returned home energized by what they learned and ready to continue
                  spreading that message to their family, friends and community.

                  Dialogue Sessions
                  The Middle East Dialogue Sessions rose to
                  new levels this summer as larger delegations
                  than ever of Palestinians from the West Bank
                  and Jerusalem, Egyptians, Jordanians,
                  Moroccans, Tunisians and Qataris, joined
                  Seeds of Peace. With the continuing
                  Intifada, their participation with a diverse
                  Israeli delegation made the Middle East pro-
                  gram challenging and intense. Borders, reli-
                  gion and the media are just some of the topics
                  that emerged during the daily 90-minute
                  professionally-facilitated Dialogue Sessions
                  that are at the core of the program. Here, the
                  most painful and divisive issues of their con-
                  flict are discussed, challenging inherent

                  which has operated successfully for
                  six years. This year, Seeds of Peace

Parent Program
Not only are the Seeds continuing their dia-
logue at home, but they have persuaded their
parents to do the same. In 2003, Seeds of
Peace launched a program for Seeds parents
and meetings began in both Haifa and
Jerusalem. These parent meetings continued
monthly in 2004 and a new Jerusalem par-
ent group was added which met fives times
during the year. Just like their children, the
parents wrapped up their sessions with a         Community Outreach

Beyond Borders
This year, Seeds of Peace introduced a groundbreaking exchange program
called “Beyond Borders/Bila Hodood” enabling Arabs and Americans to engage
in serious, honest, and open discussions on the deteriorating relationship
between the United States and the Middle East. Beyond Borders is rooted in
the belief that direct interaction and communication are important first steps
towards developing understanding and cooperation. This unique program
brought together 62 Arab and American teens and 23 education officials rep-
resenting six Middle Eastern countries (Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Yemen,
Egypt, and Jordan) and six American cities (Boston, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles,
Dallas, and Atlanta).

Seeds of Peace received both Arab and American support for Beyond Borders, demon-
strating the shared investment and commitment from both communities. Participants were
representative of the geographic, ethnic, and religious diversity in the US and the Arab
world. The youth were selected primarily on the strength of their leadership potential, and
the adults are educators well-positioned to have a significant impact on their communities.

                                            Following their camp experience, throughout the year Maine Seeds organize and attend bi-weekly meetings and are also deeply involved in
                                            their schools, communities, and state as a whole. Many Maine Seeds are members of their schools’ Civil Rights Team, and at this year’s state
                                            conference, three of the presenters were Seeds. Maine Seeds are recognized in their communities for their volunteer work and for their many
                                            contributions to civic causes. In May 2004, the Portland Seeds organized and led a state-wide Youth Summit which took place at the camp
                                            and they are engaged in organizing another summit for 2005. In addition, the Lewiston Seeds organized several fundraisers for South Asian
                                            tsunami relief that brought in over $2,000. Maine Seeds are frequently called upon to talk throughout the state about Seeds of Peace and
                                            about school issues such as diversity and tolerance. In November, the Maine Youth Action Network invited four Maine Seeds to present a
                                            workshop at their annual conference in Bar Harbor. The workshop addressed their camp experience, follow-up program and the impact Seeds
                                            of Peace has had on them and their families.

                                            The face of Maine is changing, and the Maine Seeds program is implementing proactive measures to increase understanding, tolerance, and
                                            unity throughout the state.

     can just never get enough of that summer experience and               From my own experience, I believe that young people

                      The Education Program assists Seeds of Peace graduates wishing to pursue their educa-
                      tion in the US by helping them with the application process. In addition, it raises aware-
                      ness of Seeds of Peace among US college and university admissions and financial aid rep-

                      The events planned in the US through the Global Leadership Initiative in 2004 met with
                      great success. Through the Seeds Advisory Council, the Washington Fellows Internship
                      Program, and the Art of Negotiation Conference, the Seeds Scholars have dramatically
                      increased their effectiveness both within the organization and on their US campuses.

                      The Seeds Advisory Council (SAC), estab-
                      lished in early 2004, has become the key
                      instrument for graduates’ input into all
                      aspects of the Seeds of Peace organization.
                      SAC members regularly attend board meet-
                      ings, meet with staff, and plan events for
                      Seeds Scholars which provide additional
                      leadership development opportunities.

                      The SAC members are actively promoting
                      global awareness both on their campuses

                      Delegation Leaders

                      tive communities as adults who not only serve as escorts but as emotional support for the

                      efforts of Seeds of Peace. As such, the educators truly act as a gateway to their society –
                      helping their own students to evaluate the stereotypes that discourage understanding of
                      others from different cultures, religious traditions, and political views.

Congressional Support
Seeds of Peace receives financial support from the US Government (see page 24) and along
with that comes the written endorsement of its programs. This year, the House and Senate
Appropriations Subcommittee on Foreign Operations highlighted Seeds of Peace as a “pio-
neer” in the field of conflict resolution programs (House Report 108-599). In addition, over
30 members of the Senate and almost 80 members of the House of Representatives signed
letters of support.

  Senate letter sponsored by Senators Collins, Feinstein, Levin and Snowe

  “We are strong supporters of Seeds of Peace because of the kind of innovative and quality
  programs it represents. The United States has been involved in the pursuit of peace in
  many regions of conflict for many years and there is strong bipartisan support in Congress
  for this vital American foreign policy goal and national security initiative. While it is essen-
  tial that the pursuit of peace lead to formal agreements, peace will ultimately depend on
  breaking down barriers and mistrust among people. Seeds of Peace can reach thousands
  of young people and accomplish its goal on a modest budget.”

RECOGNITION




               Events & Corporate Support
              From large-scale fundraising benefits to smaller briefings, Seeds of Peace brought togeth-
              er its graduates and supporters on a variety of occasions in 2004. Events promoting Seeds
              of Peace were held around the country and throughout the world. Additionally, fueled by
              the initiative of the Young Leadership Committee, in 2004 Seeds of Peace launched its
              Forum on Conflict & Diplomacy, a nonpartisan educational forum that provides a platform
              for thoughtful discussion on strategies to promote negotiations and resolve conflict. This
              year, corporate supporters including Carlson Wagonlit Travel, Exxon Motor Corporation,
              Ford Motor Company, and General Motors Corporation were just some of the businesses
              lending their name and financial support toward Seeds of Peace programming and events.

  Seeds of Peace Evaluation
Seeds of Peace has always solicited participant feedback on its programs to make sure
they are meeting the needs of participants as well as program objectives. These efforts
have been expanded substantially over the last two years, as Seeds of Peace has begun               Social Impact Survey
developing a monitoring and evaluation system for all its programs and camp delega-
tions. This will provide Seeds of Peace with hard data from which to evaluate, design,
and refine its programs.

                      Funding Overview
                      Seeds of Peace enjoyed another record-breaking year in terms of revenue growth, as it raised
                      the resources to allow for continued expansion of programming and investment in organizational
                      capacity. This growth is remarkable considering the competition for dollars posed by the
                      Presidential election, the continuing Israeli-Palestinian violence, and the war in Iraq.

                      In total dollars, Seeds of Peace raised $8.715 million dollars in FY2004, an increase of 42%
                      over FY2003 ($6.15 million dollars). This figure is magnified by a $1.9MM gift from an anony-
                      mous donor that helps to expand Seeds of Peace's infrastructure to deliver programming to more
                      teenagers in the Middle East, and will facilitate the launch of a major fundraising campaign.
                      Even excluding this generous gift, Seeds of Peace’s revenue grew by more than 12% in FY2004.
                      The total number of donors also grew by 10%, from 4,835 donors to 5,321 donors. Behind the
                      numbers, there are a number of indicators that suggest that Seeds of Peace can continue to
                      expand its revenue with increased efficiency.

 Budget Analysis
 With three summer sessions in Maine, including a pilot program during the third session that brought together Arab and American
 teens, the Center for Coexistence in Jerusalem, new programming initiatives in Amman and Cairo, follow-up activities for delega-
 tion leaders and youth spanning the globe, and an education and leadership programming for Seeds of Peace graduates, the Seeds
 of Peace annual operating budgeted was $7.7 million dollars in 2004. Fiscal controls now ensure that over 76 cents of every dol-
 lar support programming; moreover, Seeds of Peace is increasingly identifying new ways to reduce costs, whether it’s the introduc-
 tion of new technology or sourcing major cost categories, including travel and entertainment, printing, and shipping.
