Inspired by the vision of the "Garden of Forgiveness" and underpinned by the transformative potential of narrative and storying in social healing,
the Healing the Wounds of History (HWH) Programmes have been developed to address the need to deal with the deeper causes of violence.
All events and workshops within the HWH programmes aim to construct a safe space for the participants to experience the innovative approaches to healing in an open,
non-judgmental and empathetic culture of sharing.

and resources relating to the HWH Programmes.

We are also seeking opportunities and partners to co-develop and co-host future HWH conferences.
Recently, as part of the Garden of Forgiveness project, the HWH Programme received a grant from the Fetzer Institute
to convene and facilitate a week-long ESPERE training workshop for NGOs and other professionals in Lebanon.
The training will enable the participants to experience the HWH approaches and to develop expertise in social healing. Watch this space.
