Givat Haviva

Givat Haviva

The Givat Haviva Educational Institute, founded by the HaShomer HaTzair Movement, educates and acts to promote the values of Equality, Human Dignity and Shared Society.

Givat Haviva implements activities to develop the experience of equality between Jews and Arabs living in Israel, and provides tools to this end. This is the moral foundation for achieving peace with the Palestinians and the Arab states. Over the years Givat Haviva has worked to implement programs which promote an informed and active Arab minority in the State of Israel. This vision is translated into a rich variety of empowerment programs with Arab youth leaders, community workers and activists, and women's leadership groups, as well as a wide range of dialogue programs for all ages.

Givat Haviva fulfills the mission of the Movement in the field of Holocaust study and the heritage of the youth movements, and initiates research and educational activity based upon the wealth of material stored in the archives on the values of Kibbutz and Social Solidarity.
