“Creativity for Peace widens our horizons, encourages us to think out of the box, and helps us deal with the conflict.

—Aia, 26, Palestinian living in Israel


We envision a time when our young women will lead the people to achieve peace; when the occupation ends and justice and human rights prevail in Israel and Palestine.


Creativity for Peace trains young Palestinian and Israeli women to partner as leaders by transforming anger and prejudice to mutual respect, facilitating an understanding of the other and inspiring action to promote equality, peace and justice for all.
