Empowering Families Beyond War

Unleashing Resilience In unconvential ways

Our program is an evidence-based, family-focused approach founded on the principles of positive psychology’s PERMA+ model. Using psychoeducational modules and nature-based activities, participants are empowered to cultivate their strengths, resilience, positive emotions, relationships and a sense of purpose in order to overcome the devastating effects of war.

“Ukrainian widows, children work to overcome grief, trauma at climbing camp in the Austrian Alps”

“The camp isn’t about sitting in a darkened past with lingering fear and doubt though, but instead finding the beauty and light in what we have left, and in what might yet come to pass if we face the grief of loss and it’s control over our individual paths with courage.” – Max Lowe
