Makan is a UK educational non-profit committed to demystifying the Palestinian-Israeli issue for a broad audience. Using a language of human rights, equality, and dignity, we provide capacity-building workshops, evening talks, and an online resource that aim to help
Makan works to reframe people’s understanding of the issue by amplifying Palestinian voices and reshaping the mainstream
Like everyone else, Palestinians should be free to be with the person they love, ride on the buses they choose to ride on, and send their children to the schools they wish to send them to.
They should be free from intimidation and humiliation at military checkpoints. They should be free to enjoy the resources of their land. As a collective people, Palestinians should be free to determine their own future and secure a dignified life for themselves.
Our work is grounded in a belief in our shared humanity. As Palestinians, we are dedicated to freedom, justice, and equality for everyone. We are an independent, non-partisan organisation that is committed to inclusive learning and that opposes all forms of racism and discrimination.
