Enable Victims Of Terrorism Worldwide To Connect

Established to address the needs of children who lost parents after 9/11,Tuesday’s Children has now expanded its mission to support communities and young people affected by terror from all over the world. In addition to providing mentoring and wellness programs to 9/11 families, the organization now also brings together surviving children and young adults to support one another.

Over the summer, a group of 60 young people — which included a young woman whose father was murdered in an attack in Saudi Arabia and a woman whose guardian was killed in a bus explosion in Kenya –- partook in a weeklong conflict resolution seminar in Pennsylvania. The curriculum teaches peacebuilding and encourages positive community action.
