The Future Visions Charity

The Future Visions Charity: The charity supports entrepreneurs in the West Bank through micro and small business loans and to people in outlying villages in Palestine. Faith Matters provided strategic advice to the charity and helped to develop its structure, it direction and the systems it needed to develop in order to be effective. The Future Visions Charity provides support to many Palestinian women in villages in the Jordan Valley and in the West Bank of Palestine. It also tries to use faith and business as a route to reducing tensions and mistrust between communities. It is these latter values and vision which synergises with the work of Faith Matters which also works on programmes to tackle intolerance, hatred and bigotry.

This link has also meant that models of co-existence and dialogue have been tried and implemented in communities in Palestine, the United Kingdom and Israel.
