Cliffside Park, NJWhen we help someone in need, we are both made stronger.

Dr. Ani Kalayjian is a board-certified expert in traumatic stress, professor of psychology at Columbia University and the founder of Association for Trauma Outreach & Prevention (ATOP), better known as Meaningful World, a charitable organization dedicated to training humanitarian outreach professionals as well as responding to global and local disasters.

“We understand the challenge of creating peace,” says Dr. Kalayjian. “These atrocities are part of us, part of humanity. This is an everyday effort, so we have to focus on considering each day as a new dawn, a new hope.”

Meaningful World is about building community and developing humanity, transforming the traumas of the past to create meaning and give deeper purpose to our lives. Meaningful World’s Humanitarian Outreach Teams have helped rehabilitate survivors in over 45 countries, making a difference by transforming tragedy and trauma into healing through resilience, mindfulness, leadership and empowerment.

“Many of the countries and communities we work in already have collaborators that have been working for over 30 years,” says Dr. Kalayjian. “They reach out to us because they have local political conflict that’s devastating communities and instilling so much fear and terror that it is affecting their daily lives. So they ask for us to come and transform conflicts and help them create peace, deliver empowerment workshops, bring groups together to help bridge the gap between them.”
