Who we are

Taghyeer (Change) is a Palestinian National Nonviolence Movement of grassroots communities and emerging leaders practicing nonviolence as a unifying identity for the Palestinian people.

 

What we want to achieve

Taghyeer aims to build democratic and independent communities who have the strength to forge together a Palestinian path committed to ending the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

 

What we do

Taghyeer is a Palestinian civil society movment that creates social and political change by taking responsibility for the self-development of our society.  Our Messengers of Change enable community-led social action, empowering the leadership of women and youth to enhance basic human services and the environment by cooperative action. We come together with other organizations under the principle of a Palestinian Nonviolence Charter which we embrace as essential to build partnerships that can end the occupation.
