As a grassroots organization, Windows has a unique structure of Palestinians from both sides of the Green Line and Israeli Jews, on all levels of the organization. We all share the belief that the situation of occupation, oppression, human rights violations, and discrimination is unacceptable, and peace is not possible without addressing the real needs of the people sharing this land.
Windows has acquired unique experience in developing and implementing long-term educational programs for youth. These programs lead to sustainable changes of perceptions, attitudes, and behavior by addressing the core issues of the conflict with broad contemporary and historical perspectives, both local and global, as well as by offering emotional support throughout the process.
Since 1994 Windows has empowered hundreds of people to ask their own questions and encourage a more critical social discourse by creating alternative media such as “Windows, Hebrew-Arabic magazine”, exposing tens of thousands of readers to researched information about past and present events. The magazine has been distributed in dozens of schools through school workshops adding to the standard curriculum topics rarely addressed. Training programs for educators enable us to share our many years’ experience and a public program comprised of art projects, tours, lectures and workshops encourages open debate in a safe environment. Solidarity actions make a difference in people's lives.
Today, many of those who participated in Windows programs along the years are part of the circles who promote the idea of a future based on justice and equality for all.
Our programs are mainly focused on the Youth as we believe that education is key to producing sustainable change in attitudes, structures and institutions that will foster peace.
