PARTAKE III

About Project

The "PARTAKE III" project seeks to increase youth civic action and participation in democratic processes through promoting civic spaces where they can meet directly with decision-makers, political parties and community leaders in order to discuss current local and international developments and impact change. The project will build on previous efforts through building the capacities of young social and political activists to lead the change process in Palestinian society. They will be equipped will knowledge and skills to mobilize their communities, calling for national elections to take place and meet with leaders here and abroad to gain new experiences, knowledge and tools to support them in these efforts. They will also learn mechanisms of accessing resources and people in order to raise awareness and hold decision-makers accountable to the people’s needs.  

 

The "PARTAKE III" project is implemented by the Palestinian Association for Empowerment and Local Development—REFORM, in partnership with Konrad Adenauer Stiftung.
