Initiative summary:

EED’s contribution is allowing Al-Jothoor, based in the Druze village of Beit Jann, to reignite its activities after a short break. They are raising awareness within the Druze community in Israel of their heritage, democratic principles and human rights, through the establishment of youth dialogue groups and the organisation of dedicated workshops. While the Druze are relatively well-integrated in Israeli society, they still face official and unofficial discrimination, and Al-Jothoor hopes to build stronger civil activity in the community.
