  • Title: Agricultural and Food Security Program
    Descriptive info: Agricultural and Food Security Program.. MA’AN’s Agricultural and Food Security Program aims to improve the food security situation of the poorest and most marginalized sectors of the Palestinian society at the family and community level.. Challenges faced by the sector.. Despite the traditional basis and importance of agriculture in Palestine, its capacity to make a contribution to the economy and maintain food security is severely constrained.. Rapid population growth and demographic expansion combined with political and economic deterioration over the past.. 43.. years have reshaped agricultural systems and posed many constraints and challenges which effect Palestine’s ability to ensure the food security of its people.. The major obstacle to agricultural development as a result of the occupation is the continual confiscation of land.. Palestinians are not permitted to work in Area C, which comprises 61% of the West Bank, severely hindering the capacity of agricultural sector.. The construction of the Apartheid Wall has annexed more than 10% of the total area of the West Bank, including some of the best arable land in the West Bank.. Many farmers have been prevented from accessing and cultivating their land which now lies behind the wall.. More farmers still have had their land confiscated for settlement expansion purposes, to build Israeli only roads in the West Bank, or to create closed military areas.. In the process hundreds-of-thousands of olive trees have been uprooted, the biodiversity of many areas has been destroyed and Palestinians have been cut off from water sources.. In addition to inadequate land sources, in Gaza, fishermen are prohibited from fishing in the Mediterranean Sea, severely restricting a significant and important food source and income.. In the West Bank and Gaza, farmers have to deal with inadequate access to clean water.. In Gaza water is unfit for human consumption.. In many areas of the West Bank, especially in area C, farmers have to cope with severe restrictions on water usage due to overuse by Israeli settlements and the bans on building wells and reservoirs.. Existing wells are often behind locked fences and can  ...   programs also aim to combat unemployment and poverty in providing sustainable and long term jobs in agriculture.. In the context of such challenges, MA’AN’s Agricultural and Food Security Program aims to bring about sustainable food security in accordance with MA’AN’s values by focusing on the following areas of importance.. Protecting land and water resources from the risk of confiscation.. Improving food security.. Providing employment and regular income.. Contributing to economic productivity and exports.. Environmental protection.. MA’AN’s Agricultural and Food Security Program has identified the most pressing needs, resulting in the prioritization of the following objectives and strategies:.. Increasing steadfastness and enhancing agriculture by encouraging farmers’ attachment to the land through the rehabilitation of the damaged infrastructure and by offering support to farmers affected by the building of the Apartheid Wall..

    Descriptive info: COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM.. MA’AN’s community development program aims to.. enhance community development and decrease poverty in rural and disadvantaged areas.. MA’AN seeks to increase the opportunities of poor and marginalized areas and communities most affected by Israeli oppression and who are suffering from the consequences of this, based on real and fair participation.. The route to economic opportunity and community development starts with broad and open participation by all segments of the community.. The community is the basic building block of society and citizens themselves are the most critical aspect of community development and growth.. In the context of continuing military occupation, community development programs in the oPT face a unique set of challenges that make the principles of a holistic approach to community development all the more important.. Unemployment, imprisonment, restrictions on movement and the resulting lack of economic stability and self-confidence have put a strain on natural development and on the roles of men and women in society.. As a result, communities have suffered and brought new challenges to citizens who are struggling to cope with the consequences of Israeli oppression.. Therefore, there  ...   transportation, municipal works and educational facilities are often lacking.. In the context of these challenges, MA’AN hopes to build strong, sustainable communities where participation occurs in all areas and with all age groups and genders..

  • Title: Women Development Program
    Descriptive info: Women Development Program.. MA’AN’s Women’s Development Program aims to empower Palestinian women in the context of the continual hardship brought by occupation and equip them to succeed in the extraordinary and multiple roles that are often demanded of them.. This program aims to emphasis equality and contribute to a more equal society for women.. Historically, Palestinian women have been largely responsible for ensuring the domestic wellbeing of their families.. However, imprisonment and exile of husbands and sons has meant that many families and communities suffer from a frequent absence of male wage earners and community leaders.. In such circumstances women have often emerged to take up new roles in communities and central positions in decision-making processes.. In Palestine as a whole, few women participate in the official labor market but many women, especially in rural areas, often work unofficially or their labor is not recognized because it largely takes place in the home and is unpaid.. However almost 65% of agricultural work is done by women as part of their household duties and women often carry out a significant amount of unpaid work in rural areas.. MA’AN understands that there are constraints that block women’s equal participation in the development process.. These obstacles include a lack of social services, lack of training, low self-esteem, lack of technology and a lack of information, in addition to social and cultural constraints.. Women are also not offered enough assistance,  ...   women as primary stakeholders and encourage female participation in all phases of our programs.. In addition, MA’AN is committed to supporting women’s role in society through promoting their participation in its development projects.. During project planning, implementation and evaluation, processes are applied that reaffirm the principles of gender quality.. Through the application of this approach, the Women’s Development Program pursues the following fundamental goals:.. Developing women’s leadership.. Strengthening women’s organizations.. Supporting women’s rights, equality and equity.. Creating political and economic opportunities.. By applying these objectives, MA’AN continues to work with women’s organizations in order to ensure that they are active participants in development.. MA’AN is assisting in the development and establishment of women’s centers and offers training courses in career development, computer skills and specialized English.. In addition MA’AN has assisted in training courses in food processing, home gardening, organic agriculture as well as in skills such as knitting, sewing machine maintenance, interior design, upgrading skills for dental assistants, and DIY.. Projects are also aimed at developing women’s abilities to be more active and professional in their jobs and enhance women’s centers’ institutional structures, systems, networking, infrastructure and entrepreneurial development for poor and most marginalized groups to start their own enterprises using the methodology of Competency-based Economies through Formation of Enterprise (CEFE).. In addition, MA’AN works to advocate for the rights of all women in Palestinian society and to improve their situation, representation and status in society..

  • Title: Youth and Adolescent Development Program
    Descriptive info: Youth and Adolescent Development Program.. MA’AN’s Youth and Adolescent Development Program aims to empower youth and enhance their involvement and participation in developing themselves, their communities and Palestinian society as a whole.. Challenges faced the sector.. Palestine is a young society, 64% of the population is under 24 years old and 49% is under 15 years old.. Despite this, there are insufficient and inadequate services to support youth.. Although there are many youth centers located throughout the oPT these mainly cater for men, leaving a lack of services for young women and the services they do provide for men are inadequate.. The socio-political context of military occupation has led Palestinian youth to suffer from the absence of a secure environment for physical and mental development.. The occupation has meant that young people are unable to plan for a successful and happy future and opportunities for self-expression and employment are limited.. As a result unemployment among the young is extremely high and most young people are depressed about their present living situation.. Young Palestinians are extremely marginalized and there is weak participation at political, economic and social levels and especially and most importantly in decision making at the community level.. Youth, especially young men, are particularly targeted by the Israeli occupation forces.. Most of those who have been imprisoned, injured or killed by the Israeli occupation forces have been young men.. Currently, the political and social agenda  ...   violence, abuse and racism.. Providing and improving educational and youth orientated spaces.. MA’AN’s program is creating and improving venues for youth participation and improving the quality of services for youth and adolescents.. Within these youth centers, MA’AN hopes to improve the infrastructure, capacities, the ability to provide quality services and the good governance, transparency, efficiency and effectiveness of these youth centers.. It also aims to enhance values of citizenship and belonging among the young by increasing their participation at all levels of society and including them at every level of decision making.. It hopes especially to help women participate on an equal basis with men in society.. MA’AN’s interventions also aim to contribute to the enhancement of youth’s participation in policy formulation.. The Youth and Development program also comprises various training and developmental programs in with the aim of encouraging young people to have a more active role in participating in their communities and becoming the future leaders of Palestine.. The problems, interests and needs of youth and adolescents will be integrated into all MA’AN’s different sectors in order to create jobs, opportunities and increase the participation of young men and women.. MA’AN also seeks to advocate for the rights of young men and women in order to protect their rights and enhance their position in society.. MA’AN seeks to improve the partnership, complementarity and cooperation with different stakeholders, including government, NGOs and the private sector..
