“The pioneering Palestinian association in social development that contributes to consolidating the principles of civil peace and social cohesion within the framework of the rule of law and improving the responsiveness of public systems to the needs of Palestinian citizens, by promoting the participation of marginalised groups –especially youth and women– in public life and local development efforts in their communities and the continuous internal development of the association’s managerial and technical capabilities.”

Together at REFORM, we adopt the following principles during the processes of designing and implementing our various interventions:
We believe that promoting comprehensive participation in Palestinian society is a prerequisite to empowering marginalised groups and improving their living conditions. This participation is reflected in our projects.
We hold that access to information is an inviolable right for every Palestinian, supporting transparency and accountability throughout society.
We are committed to ensuring the sustainability of our interventions! Based on the needs of our beneficiaries and building on their skills and talents, we empower REFORM’s participants to continue being active beyond our interventions.
We seek to enhance our human and institutional capacity with the aim of ensuring effectiveness and transparency in everything we do.
We champion a needs-based approach, strengthening local capacities to lead community development.
