ActionAid Palestine (APP) has been closely monitoring rights violations in targeted communities and has continuously planned strategies to respond to these violations. As a feminist organization, AAP believes that one of the best ways to address rights’ violations is to empower women to achieve positive changes in their lives which will in turn impact on their families, households and communities.
This project targets women in the H21 area, including Hebron Old City in Hebron Governorate, south West Bank Area in the Palestinian Occupied Territory. Women in Hebron Old City face discriminatory social norms, laws, policies and practices that prevent them from achieving their full potential and their rights.
The project has three objectives: to enhance women’s voices and status in households and communities, to effectively address key concerns of women through women-led advocacy actions and to increase women’s income and decision-making power over that. In order to achieve these objectives AAI Human Rights’ Based Approach (HRBA) will be followed and applied through Reflection Action cycles: empowerment, solidarity and campaigning.
