The Palestinian Centre for Peace and Democracy (PCPD) is an independent, civil NGO that works in the field of political development and genuine peace, that believes in complete equality in accordance with the Palestinian Declaration of Independence and the International Conventions that Palestine has ratified. Through a group of activities, the PCPD strives to educate young women and men to the importance of CEDAW, UN Resolution 1325 and the 2030 Agenda to achieve for Sustainable Development; in realizing human rights of all and into achieving gender equality. We believe that more women in politics make for stronger democracies; thus, we have to make equal opportunities for leadership and participation of women at all levels of decision making in political, economic and public life.
- Training of young women to advocate for their political and economic rights through social media

The overall objective of this project is to empower groups of young women representing women community based organizations to be actively engaged in the policy processes on the national and local levels, leading towards an environment where women are agents of change in their communities; where women can find a safe space in these organizations to be active in the private sphere.
