Situation

There is a widespread and persistent intolerance between Jewish and Arab Israelis. Jewish and Arab children in Israel attend segregated schools in separate school systems, living separate lives in which their exposure to each others' language an cultures. Living in separate towns surrounded by hostility and separatism, Jews and Arabs rarely get an opportunity to experience each other's culture first hand

Solution

To break down barriers between the Jewish and Arab children of Israel. By reducing fear, ignorance, and stereotypes among students, teachers, parents and principals it will generate inter-group understanding, cooperation and mutual respect and strengthen commitment to democracy, tolerance and diversity including a greater acceptance of and openness toward the counterpart language and culture. This model is accepted as a positive activity which would be implemented further when Govt budgets allow
