In 2019, NDC managed to sustain and even expand its existing programmes to include the sectors of culture, human rights, good governance, protection, health, education, employment, and provision of social services in both the Gaza Strip and the West Bank including Jerusalem.
At a time when the Palestinian NGO Sector faces major challenges due to the political conditions in the Palestinian territories and the ongoing conflicts in the region, and in light of the urgent need for the services provided by the NGOs and their complimentary role in this regard to the public sector institutions, and despite the scarcity of financial resources available to NGOs, yet NDC doubled its efforts to overcome these.difficulties and challenges and continued to fulfill its mission by meeting the needs of the marginalized groups within the Palestinian society.
NDC programs and grants empower Palestinians to help Palestinians by providing NGOs the skills, tools and funds they require to address social needs and promote self-reliance amidst poverty. We advocate greater NGO transparency and accountability through the adoption of professional financial and management practices, and promote sector-wide coordination and sharing of best practice experiences.
