Shaping the Future

Shaping the Future
In full cooperation with The Search For Common Ground and the support of USAID, CARE's project, "Shaping the Future"

CARE produced a documentary series that demonstrates, while not inevitable, peace is possible and agreements can be reached on the key issues. The series explores the background, various positions, and the options for solutions in each of the disputed final status issues. The program looks at the following issues:

  • Right of Return and Refugees

  • Jerusalem

  • Settlements

  • Relations between the two states, including security issues

Methodology
The project is based on an existing structure of groups of educators set up throughout the West Bank. Each group works on a continuous basis throughout the scholastic year, tackling various issues relating to complex current events. These groups try to explore how it is possible to implement values of human rights and understanding within the classroom.
 This project used four working groups that were already functioning and had working relationships with educators. The facilitators leading the groups, have already established a rapport with the teachers and have received previous training to lead the discussion in each group. The team of four facilitators will work with their groups of eight to ten teachers each, to design educational materials.
Together with the teachers in their groups the facilitators worked to create the teachers guide.

Shaping the Future

2004 -2005
Shaping the Future
A joint project between CARE and SEARCH FOR COMMON GROUND

The project was documented during the scholastic year 2004 -2005. Its focused on sensitive political issues but from an educational perspective. These issues include:

  •  The Right of Return

  •  Jerusalem

  •  Settlements

  •  Future Israeli-Palestinian Relations


More than 150 Palestinian Teachers (both females and males) from different geographical areas and educational sectors were trained in the project for implementation in their class rooms.

Centre for Applied Research in Education
Trauma Recovery Projects – summary of progress (2009-2013)
CARE has been developing a long standing relationship with the University of Dundee and the Children and War Foundation to capacity build trauma recovery skills for professionals in the West Bank and Gaza. The main aim of training for school counsellors has been to deliver evidence-based trauma recovery programmes to children across Palestine. In partnership with the Ministry of Education, a social policy programme involving a rolling programme of trauma recovery training is on-going across the West bank and Gaza.By the end of the rolling programme of training and programme delivery in Palestine more than 1 million children will have benefitted from this initiative.
The next training in the Teaching Recovery Techniques Training for school counsellors is in October 2013 and is planned to be held in Hebron. This ensures counsellors trained in the Children and War’s ‘Teaching Recovery Techniques’ (TRT) programme is available across the West Bank. Research is also on-going with the third phase of the TRT programme evaluation due to start in October 2013(...More)
