The Teacher Creativity Center (Palestine)

Teacher Creativity Center

The Teacher Creativity Centre (TCC) is the Palestinian member of the Alternatives International Federation.  It is a Palestinian, non-profit, non-governmental organization, established in May 1995, by a group of teachers working in schools in the government, private and UNRWA schools.

Since its inception TCC has worked to ensure a peaceful and secure environment within schools. TCC's goal is to eliminate violence from schools by means of encouraging human rights and civic education culture. TCC has been in the forefront of organizations calling for the integration of civic education and human rights concepts into the entire school curriculum; not only at the Palestinian level but also at the wider Arab World Level.

TCC has successfully implemented a number of studies and training programs in the fields of human rights, democracy and civic education targeted at educators, especially teachers, in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
