Coexist Foundation

Coexist is a non-profit organization advancing social cohesion through education and innovation.

We help break the cycle of conflict by creating opportunities for people to work & learn together.

In an increasingly globalized society, education plays a crucial role in both developing understanding of different cultures and preparing the next generation to tackle global challenges.

Coexist is at the forefront of modern educational programming as it evolves beyond traditional curricula to foster greater understanding across divides.

We leverage economic incentives to create opportunities for divided groups to work together toward a common goal and in doing so strengthen the bonds of their community.
