In Support of Palestinian Women

02.06.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

This research report focuses on numerous institutions which serve Palestinian women working in Israel and in the occupied territories, most of them located in Gaza, Jerusalem and Ramallah. Among them, over 80% of the NGOs have programmes serving women. This survey is the outcome of the interviews and the analysis of questionnaires among organizations that allocate over 50% of their budget to activities in favour of women. It seeks to identify their profile, forms of organization and type of activities. The document also provides information on the institutions serving Palestinian women living in Lebanon, Jordan and Syria.
