Local, international, and American non-profit/non-governmental organizations are invited to submit proposals for implementation in Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Israel to promote cross-cultural cooperation based on common interest to drive sustainable relationships by building civil society capacity and/or strengthening problem solving and negotiation skills.

Program Objectives

The initiative focuses on two main strategic goals:

  • To promote cross-cultural cooperation based upon a foundation of shared practical interests and to strengthen civil society capacity through mutually beneficial projects, which encourage innovation and economic growth.
  • To support and facilitate efforts to strengthen problem solving and negotiation mechanisms, particularly in Jerusalem.
