Wi'am Palestinian Conflict Resolution Center: Palestine Charity Profile
As a grassroots organization established in Bethlehem in 1995, Wi’am (“Cordial Relationships” in Arabic) aims to improve the quality of relationships and promote peace and reconciliation in the community. It strives alongside other forces present in the community to build a society based on democratic norms and values.
Since opening its doors, Wi’am mediators have been proud to have intervened in thousands of individual and community conflicts. These conflicts have all stemmed from the same root causes: the continued Israeli occupation, the deterioration of both economic and political prospects, and the flagrant violations of human rights of the Palestinian people. All of these influence the types of conflicts we deal with and the approaches we employ to mediate any case of conflict. The only certainty in our own context is uncertainty.
