What is Damour for Community Development?

It is a non-profit organization that works with people at the grass-root level to facilitate positive changes in their lives. Damour works mainly with vulnerable people especially those affected by the Israeli occupation and suffered great deal of hardship. Damour’s role is unique in the region through working on turning the notion of being victim of war to being actors and more resilient communities that can decrease dependence on charity and become a productive force in community development and peace building. Moreover, we aim to achieve a just settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict on the basis of the two-state solution and the Arab peace initiative. This requires active engagement with the Israeli peace camp and International bodies who recognize these reference initiatives to achieve this solution.
