Humanitarian Aid Workers

Our scholarship offerings are supported by the generous contributions of individuals and foundations.


Violent conflicts and natural disasters are disrupting the globe. After every emergency, humanitarian aid workers respond to care for those affected by tragedy. But how do these individuals learn to care for themselves, to maintain their well-being and effectiveness in the field? The Contemplative-Based Resilience (CBR) program is a proactive, skills-based, secular program targeted to service providers who work with people and communities subject to traumatic disruptions. Funding provides scholarships for humanitarian aid workers serving around the world to participate in our trainings.
