TANDI is an Arab-Jewish organization founded in 1948. The movement focuses on Arab women who are citizens of Israel, many from small villages in the northern and central regions. Its main areas of activity are equality for women, children’s rights, peace and democracy. Group activities focus on young Palestinian women with the objective of empowering and educating them about their rights at a significant phase in their lives.

TANDI is an alliance of two organizations: Women’s Awakening, founded in 1948 as an Arab women’s organization, and the Progressive Democratic Organization of Jewish Women. Both had the same goals and mission, and believed that banding together would contribute to the success of their activities. As a result, TANDI: Movement of Democratic Women for Israel was created.
