Juhoud for Community and Rural development



About the Institution: Juhoud for Community and Rural development is a Palestinian non-governmental, nonprofit organization founded in 2003. Juhoud is committed to support community development in marginalized rural areas through the promotion of economic development civic engagement, and community education and training. Since its inception, Juhoud has contributed in improving the social and economic situation of many Palestinian families through investing the available local resources.  Juhoud also worked and is working on promoting the participation of young people in their local communities and creating job opportunities for them.

Life Skills-Related: The project title is “Employability & Entrepreneurship”. The type of life skills that used by our program were priorities upon the needs of our targeted youth and women in the rural areas of Palestine. In  2013  Juhoud  in  cooperation with  other  local  partners  developed  a  nee  assessment  for  the  needs  of Palestinian  youth  in the  rural  areas,  as  a  result of the assessment the  needed  life  skills  for  youth  were classified  upon  their  qualification,  educational  backgrounds,  and  matched  to  the  requirements  of employers’ needs.
