The International Center of Bethlehem

Dar Annadwa Addawliyya

A Truly Ecumenical Institution

The ICB is a Lutheran-based, ecumenically-oriented institution serving the whole Palestinian community. The programs of the Center serve the entire community from “the womb to the tomb”, with an emphasis on children, youth and women.

With an Ambitious Mission

Equipping the local community to assume a proactive role in shaping their future is at the heart of the ICB’s mission. Through empowering the local community, developing human resources, cultivating artistic talents, and facilitating intercultural encounters, the ICB actively promotes the building of Palestinian civil society.

Guided by a Unique Philosophy

The philosophy of the ICB is contextual in its approach with a cross-cultural perspective. It is interdisciplinary and dynamic to insure that the services provided are in harmony with society’s needs and changes.

Supported by a Highly Motivated Staff

The staff of the ICB, the majority of whom are women, is highly educated and well qualified. Many of the staff returned to their homeland believing in the mission of the ICB.  In 1995, when the ICB was officially inaugurated, it had a staff of four persons. Now, the ICB is developing into one of the largest private employer in the Bethlehem region.
