United in Diversity II
The "United in Diversity II" project aims to promote young men and women's participation in decision-making processes through monitoring plans and policies of organizations and holding local organizations accountable at the level of public policies that increase youth's participation in public life. The project aims to enhance the values of good governance and transparency in the work of local organizations, and to inform policymakers of citizens' rights and needs. The project will build the capacities of its target groups in participatory processes and facilitation skills using the Facilitating Reform Methodology, developing their accountability skills and monitoring the extent to which public policies respond to the needs of local communities.
"United In Diversity II" is implemented by the Palestinian Association for Empowerment and Local Development – REFORM, in partnership with Norwegian People’s Aid.
