BREAKING THROUGH BARRIERS: DIGITAL COMMUNITY AND CONNECTIVITY IN PALESTINE

Palestine has a well-educated youth population, whose potential is stunted by high unemployment rates, lack of local job opportunities and a difficult security situation that severely restricts movement.

The project aims to increase long-term income generation capacity for young Palestinians by accelerating coding skills, developing digital marketing and business skills, and strengthening a self-supporting community of aspiring freelance and salaried tech sector employees.

This initiative builds on Mercy Corps’ established Gaza Sky Geeks tech education and community building experience.
