Tamer Institute for Community Education
Missions and objectives
Vision: Towards a Safe and Free Palestinian Learning Society
Tamer’s first focus in its 4 year strategy (2021-2024), is to create a free space where children and youth can actively engage with their communities through activities and programs initiated by Tamer institute. This includes reading, writing, and all forms of free expression. In this sense, Tamer will ensure that all the activities and programs implemented in these spaces are operating effectively and efficiently, which will, in turn, reinforce the social fabric in the Palestinian community. Moreover, given Tamer’s role and recognition of its contribution to a reading community through its publications and scholarly supportive work in child literature, Tamer second focus will be on providing children and youth with literary and cultural productions that stimulates imagination and curiosity, and will also continue conducting research on children’s culture and productions. Furthermore, Tamer will promote the quality productions, developing and implementing cultural events, and organize capacity-building workshops for bookmakers/ producers (illustrators, authors, animators, designers… etc).
