Short Description:

Overall goal

Consisting of more than 500 bereaved families, almost half Palestinians and half Israelis, The Families Forum has played a crucial role since its inception in 1995, in spearheading a reconciliation process between Israelis and Palestinians. The Families Forum has promoted reconciliation as an alternative to hatred and revenge, which for too long have been the prevailing response of many Palestinians and Israelis. The Forum's members have all lost close relatives due to the violence in the region.

The project supports the educational programme of the Parents' Circle, which encompasses the following sub-programmes:

- Educational encounters in Israel and the Palestinian Authority;

- Youth leadership training for Israelis and Palestinians;

- New documentary film for educational activities;

- Operation of the internet website;

- Research on the impact of the educational work conducted by Parents' Circle;

- Professional training of internal lecturer/facilitators;
