Switzerland promotes social cohesion and civic peace through creating safe spaces for women, youth, and persons with disabilities in the Gaza Strip. By fostering local capacities and promoting community-led initiatives Safe Spaces strengthens the resilience of vulnerable groups. This second phase puts a stronger accent on skills and economic empowerment for youth in line with the Cooperation Programme 2021-24. By advocating for inclusive societies it contributes to mitigate the spread of extremism and radicalization.

Projet en bref
* Contexte : For the last 15 years, 2.2 million Palestinians have been under an Israeli closure within the 365 km² area of the Gaza Strip. They do not receive adequate services. The population has suffered from four major military hostilities since 2008, and has a chronic unemployment rate reaching 49%, of whom 70% are youth. The intervention seeks to improve the situation of children, youth and women, including PWDs in the middle and the southern areas of Gaza Strip, where the offer of services is particularly weak.
* Objectifs  : Empowered women, youth and persons with disabilities take active part in community initiatives and have better access to livelihood opportunities with the support of inclusive and capacitated educational and cultural institutions.
* Groupes cibles  : - Middle Area, Gaza Strip, Deir Al Balah, Zawaida, (NAWA) : 9’000 children, 600 youth, 600 parents & women, 450 educators, including persons with disabilities. - CBOs within the Middle Area of the Gaza Strip. - Municipalities of Deir Balah and Zawaida and private sector service providers.
