Matzmichim – The Israeli Violence Reduction Organization
ID: 580419521    Category:
The Israeli Violence Reduction Organization is dedicated to providing students and teachers with tools for coping with violence. Our mission is strengthening the fiber of society through reducing violence and creating a safer school environment.
The NGO is based on the "German Academy for Violence Prevention" model, which serves as an umbrella institution to hundreds of independent programs and organizations active in the struggle against violence from all its aspects.
Matzmichim's goal is to establish a similar form of ‘poly-clinic’, promoting violence prevention knowledge and practices; offering various approaches to varying types of violence to varying target audiences.
Cooperation is a main guiding principle in our vision. We invite you to take part in the making of this social change and support our activities.

Matzmichim was established in 2004 in view of the expressions and the scope of violence in Israeli society in general and among youth in particular. We are an NGO dedicated to train students, teachers and parents to deal nonviolently with violence. We strive to establish a fruitful cooperation among these three partners of the school community. Embedded in our work is the conviction that violence cannot and should not be overcome by violence. It must be approached and dealt with by nonviolent means, otherwise it will escalate and perpetuate. We set out to reach a measurable reduction of violence in the Israeli school system. Our organization was awarded with the Knesset Chairman Quality of Life Award and was selected by the New Fund for Israel and the IVN Fund, among hundreds of applicants, as one of the four leading social start-ups in the years 2008-2010. To date, SOS Violence has worked with 60,000 students (ages 8-17), teachers and parents from the north of Israel to the south in Jewish communities as well as Arab communities.
