Who We Are
Challenge is an Israeli NGO, formed in 2010, to promote Conflict Transformation within both the Israeli and Palestinian arenas.
Conflict Transformation is an innovative approach that helps to identify the different layers in the dynamic of a conflict and provides practical tools to reduce the suffering through empathy, creativity, and non-violence.
Challenge's work is based on an egalitarian and participatory dialogue that tests premises. Our work is not neutral. It is based on a vision-led, theory-driven, and action-oriented participatory approach.
What is Conflict Transformation
"Conflict transformation is to envision and respond to the ebb and flow of social conflict as life-giving opportunities for creating constructive change processes that reduce violence, increase justice in direct interaction and social structures, and respond to real-life problems in human relationships.”
- John Paul Lederach, The Little Book of Conflict Transformation, 2003
