British Friends of Neve Shalom

Charity description

British Friends of Neve Shalom logo
Oasis of Peace is the English translation of Neve Shalom in Hebrew & Wahat al-Salam in Arabic. Put those words together and you have Neve
Shalom/Wahat al-Salam (NSWaS), a place in Israel where education is the road to peace.We are the UK support group.

Please donate to support our cause.Our hopes for peace between Israel and Palestine lie at the grassroots. When young people have grown up side by side, are taught together without fear or suspicion of the ‘other’, they do not question each other’s rights to live as friends and neighbours. This is what happens at NSWaS’s Primary School & Kindergarten, where the majority of children come from the surrounding towns and villages. Since 20 percent of Israel’s citizens are Palestinian Arabs, teaching Jewish and Arab children together, and encouraging discourse and dialogue, is a no brainer!

Your donations help us support these educational programmes.
