Implemented by Med Dialogue Fellow: Noran ABU GANEM
Organization: AJEC / DESERT STARS
Duration: 15/03/2022 – 31/03/2022

This action is about raising awareness on critical thinking tools as a solution for the divisions in the Bedouin society between the people from villages and the people from the cities. It aims to create critical dialogues about “cultural conditions in the Bedouin society” and promote social cohesion. This action targets at least 260 students and volunteers from different backgrounds such as unrecognised Bedouin villages, recognised villages, and cities.

Key Activities:
  • Conducting lectures on Bedouin culture between the past and the present through critical thinking approaches for “Desert Stars” students and AJEC volunteers.
  • Celebrating Bedouin culture day in the “Al-Salam” primary school and based on what they learned.
  • Hosting Dialogue sessions for the students of “Desert Stars” and AJEC programmes volunteers about social and cultural challenges in the Bedouin Community.
  • Organising visits for students from “Desert Stars” to unrecognised and recognised villages and Bedouin cities to highlight the similarities and the differences between the three different types of Bedouin lifestyle.
