The division between Fatah and Hamas has led to the suspension of the democratic process. The younger generation, which represents nearly 65% of the population of Gaza, has therefore never had the opportunity to participate in the elections. It is essential to create a culture of non-violence to equip young Palestinians to resolve their differences peacefully.
Albina du Boisrouvray, Founder and President Emerita of FXB, has initiated a partnership with PalThink for Strategic Studies, an independent think tank and working group created in 2007.
The objective of this joint project is to carry out activities aimed at promoting, disseminating and strengthening the concept, culture and principles of non-violence within Palestinian society, specifically targeting young people in Gaza who are the key to positive change in society.
More specifically, this includes training local community educators and civil society organizations with the concepts and tools necessary to resolve social and political differences through peaceful means, and disseminating the values of non-violence in Palestinian society through specific publications and media.
