The Parent Circle Families Forum – an organisation working to resolve conflict between Palestinian and Israeli families, has been selected to receive The Gandhi Foundation International Peace Award 2010 in October.
Judges said the Forum has been guided by one of the highest forms of Gandhian ideals: that of dialogue and understanding each other’s point of view to find common ground on which to base a solution.
The Forum members – half Palestinian and half Israeli – have each lost family members due to the conflict. The group promote peace and political agreement, while preventing bereavement being used as a means to expand hostility. Activities include face-to-face or online reconciliation projects, dialogue sessions for both young people and adults, school visits and a television drama series.
