We cannot deny their role in promoting a culture of dialogue, encouraging family and then community dialogue, and promoting communication, love, coexistence and peace.

It targeted the mothers and ladies of the community, male and female students, young men and women and children through workshops and cultural programs such as theater, sports and reading. The Sunday school counselors were also trained on the use of interactive theater and the football of tolerance to promote a culture of dialogue and renounce violence, in addition to cartoon cards and interactive games. These activities were implemented with students of all ages, and a workshop was held for school teachers under the title: The role of women from the point of view of men. The importance of women’s participation in the public sphere was highlighted, and the problems that impede women’s participation were identified and solutions were proposed, as well as a workshop on the role of the mother in promoting a culture of dialogue and coexistence.
