We support the youth wellbeing, we work to create for them a more inclusive and accessible environment and promote their independence. In order to create a more sustainable development process

Present in the country since 1993, we work to support the population with educational projects, vocational training and support for micro-enterprises.

Working for future generations. Education is a key theme in Palestine, where the attendance rate in secondary schools doesn't reach more than 65%. That is why educational work is essential because it can promote dialogue and exchange between different personalities. AVSI promotes access to education for children through programs of inclusion in public and private institutions in East Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Jericho. The proposed work includes school staff, students and families to improve the quality of academic programs and facilitate the inclusion of pupils with special educational needs.

For social and educational inclusion. In Palestine, the vulnerability of people with disabilities is exacerbated by extreme poverty, high unemployment and continuing political instability. More than a third of people with disabilities have never attended school. AVSI's work seeks to support the social inclusion of young people with disabilities through the provision of vocational training courses and measures to support and strengthen their independence. The courses implemented are chosen based on market needs and include several areas including: carpentry; metalworking; shoe repairs; tailoring; knitting; embroidery; pottery and ceramics. In addition, expert staff guide students with job placement support activities.

"We support the welfare of young people, making their environment more inclusive and accessible and supporting their independence, to create favorable conditions for a more sustainable development process".
