We seek to empower young Palestinians to find jobs in the green transition and mobilize for improved skills and vocational education that strengthen the resilience of their communities.

in Palestine partner with Oxfam IBIS to support young people
Our work in Palestine focuses on the needs and aspirations of young people.
One in three Palestinians live in poverty and prospects for a safe, and decent future are severely limited by the Israeli occupation.
Almost half of the Palestinian population is dependent on aid, and almost two million people are trapped in Gaza with little access to basic necessities and economic opportunities.
Without access to jobs, it is impossible for young people to build a future for themselves and become active citizens who can fight for their rights.
That is why we support young Palestinian men and women to get the technical and vocational education and training that will enable them to get a job.
It will strengthen local communities and help build a strong and resilient Palestine.
“ The Palestinian economy cannot become self-sustainable under the existing conditions as Israeli restrictions and occupation does not allow Palestinian control of its own resources or economy. ”
