Objectives of the programme in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory


In 2007, the objectives of the programme in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory were:

  • Development of children's self-expression skills; stimulating fantasy and creativity through theatre, painting and creative activities;
  • Improvement of children's skills in coping with everyday problems and conflicts; 
  • Improvement of relations between young people of different ethnicities and religions, increasing the understanding of the 'other side'; 
  • Reduction of the number of violent incidents at schools and at home through programmes that promote non-violent conflict resolution; 
  • Increasing the expertise of local relief organisations in implementing psychosocial projects for adolescents.
