This 3-year project’s general objective is to bypass the obstacles to development in the occupied Palestinian Territory by exploiting the potential of digital tools. The specific objective of the project will be to enhance young Palestinians’ employability through the improvement of their digital perspectives. These objectives will be achieved through the reinforcement of capacities and coordination mechanisms for key digital stakeholders, improvement of access to digital literacy resources for young Palestinians, and the provision of resources and tools for Palestinian young entrepreneurs to realize their business ideas. The project will directly benefit 2,500 people, including 750 women and 125 people with disabilities. The action will also reach a wider range of indirect beneficiaries at a national and regional level through the platform, and the creation of a forum for all aspiring and young entrepreneurs to connect with established entrepreneurs at a local and international level.
