1What we do
Responses to the “situation” in the Middle East vary from apathy to helplessness to anger and every emotion in between. Many good people want to do something to improve the situation but feel impotent as no one seems to make any lasting progress.
However, by facilitating dialogue between Israeli and Palestinian youth Windows for Peace UK gives people the opportunity to make a real difference.
Mainly, we do this by supporting the work of Windows Channels for Communication (CfC) in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories We also run dialogue activities with young people in the UK.
Windows CfC help young people find “someone to talk to on the other side.” By talking and more importantly listening, individuals begin to realise that they have more in common than not. They become a living example of a true alternative based on dialogue. They influence their communities from the inside and in turn, we hope that they will raise their children with less fear and more humanness.
“Our main goal is to restore hope in the hearts of children and young people.”
Rutie Atsmon, Director of Windows CfC, in Health Matters
