Wi’am is a grassroots organization that strives along other democratic forces in the community to build a strong civil society, a culture of non-violence , promote cross/inter cultural dialogue and respond to community needs. We also strive to build a democratic and pluralistic society with a focus on active youth participation in community building and the use of non-violent methods to deal with conflicts.
On the educational level, Wi’am focuses on experiential learning, qualitative research, training manuals, creative involvement, appreciative inquiry and perspective building through interactive workshops, trainings and discussions in conflict prevention and transformation, non-violent communication, leaderships skills, mediation and voluntarism as a way of life. These include role-plays, case studies, simulations, group activities, small and large group discussions, personal inquiry and input sessions.
On the socioeconomic level, we strive to resolve community conflicts nonviolently and help impoverished families find temporary employment through Job- Creation projects.
