i). Livelihood support project for persons with disability, West Bank - ongoing

This new project, funded by Interpal and IDEALS, began in the north of the West Bank in December 2013. Together with our local partner, Palestinian Medical Relief Society (PMRS), we are attempting to improve the social integration and financial independence of 18 PWD through the provision of: vocational training (hairdressing and wheelchair/scooter maintenance); training in the management of a small business; and a start-up grant to establish their own small business. This is an exciting new project, one which we hope to expand and replicate within the Gaza Strip.
