AEI supports Palestinian youth, women and educators in building community and voicing their cultural identity and human rights.
AEI-Open Windows is an Arab-Palestinian NGO affiliated to Pax Christi International and established in Bethlehem in 1986 by a group of Palestinian educators. Working with youth, women and educators, it is engaged in the field of community education to contribute to the general causes of participation in public life and in peace and justice; the building of a free, democratic and culturally pluralistic Palestine, and the sharing and communication of the daily life reality of Palestine with broader audiences.
This is done by:
- Activating youth and developing youth leadership skills
- Raising awareness about values, culture and identity
- Training in effectively communicating Palestinian reality
- Developing the capacity, sustainability and outreach of the organization.
