"Insijam" Initiative

About Project

The "Insijam" Initiative, which will take place over 18 months, seeks to empower and increase the participation of women and girls, as well as young men, in local and national efforts to combat prevailing social norms, gender-based violence and the negative impacts of the coronavirus crisis on Palestinian society, especially in the aftermath of the outbreak, and strengthen the capacities of young women and young men to influence policy and decision-making processes, through creative advocacy efforts, promoting a more gender-equitable society.

The "Insijam" Initiative comes as part of the Naseej regional project, co-funded by OXFAM and the European Union, which aims to combat sexual and gender-based violence to ensure that women and girls live a safe life from violence.
