The Abraham Center is a private non-profit independent school. It was founded in 1995 to meet the need for education that would open cultural, academic, political and personal doors to the world, periodically after the Oslo agreement signed between the Palestinians and Israelis in 1994.
The center adopts a philosophy of initiating dialogue between Arab citizens of Gaza Strip and Israeli people and all over the world, after long period of seclusion, regardless of tongue, religion, color, or ethnic differences. Dialogue has been translated in action by the cross-cultural exchange program launched in 1998 with Norwegian High Schools after the idea was first initiated by a teacher who has ties to both the Manglerud School in Norway and The Abraham Center in Gaza.
Through the cross-cultural exchange program, The Abraham Center works on involving Palestinian pioneer students in environments where they can exchange experiences and knowledge with others from different cultures and represent the Palestinian society for a better future. For this activity, the first Norwegian students delegation arrived in Gaza in 1998. The first Palestinian delegation of 8 students visited Norway in April 1998.

The visitor students spent their evening sometimes with their host families talking about Palestine and learning about Norwegian culture, they also had the chance to visit other places and go shopping with their host students, and were invited to parties at different Norwegian hosting family homes.

They also visited Nonsen School Folk High School, Ronningen Folk High School whose students and teachers visited The Abraham Center program was full of . Other than that the trip learning and new interesting experiences considering skiing in Lillehammer.
