Friends of Givat Haviva
supports dialogue, environmental and creative, arts-based educational programs that
promote an understanding of civil society, democracy, diversity, tolerance,
co-existence, conflict resolution, and lessons of the Holocaust. The programs, based
on proven effective Givat Haviva Center programs, include Heart to Heart which brings together diverse youth and students in Canada.
Givat Haviva is a non-profit
organization founded in 1949 as the national education center of the Kibbutz
Federation in Israel. It is dedicated to promoting mutual responsibility, civic
equality and cooperation between divided groups in Israel as the foundation for
building a shared future and shared society – critical elements of a
sustainable and thriving Israeli democracy.
To this end, Givat Haviva serves
as a catalyst in activating divided communities to work together towards
achieving their common goals, while engaging in a process of interaction,
support and empowerment. This is done
through facilitating cross-community projects; leading training and capacity
building activities; convening seminars, workshops and conferences to cultivate
concrete ideas that foster change; and translating these ideas into action.
A leader in its field, Givat
Haviva was awarded the UNESCO Prize for Peace Education in 2001 for its
longstanding work in promoting Jewish-Arab dialogue and reconciliation.
