General

The proposed initiative was designed by 15 youth activists and farmers (7 males and 8 females) aged 18 to 30, living in the Jordan Valley and Masafer Yatta , communities in the West Bank characterized by conservative and patriarchal values. These young activistsare currently enrolled in a training program on advocacy and land rights (e.g. land registration mechanisms, legal protection, HR violations documentation, advocacy and digital campaigning), a component under a 3-year EU funded project ending inFebruary 2022 andimplemented by one of Oxfam’s partners, the Palestinian Farmers Union . The proposed initiative will build on the project’s key achievements by increasing PFU’s capacity to strengthen the knowledge and skills of youth activists and farmers to engage in collectiveinfluencing actions and their active participation and engagement in promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment in their communities. The initiative will mainstream cross-cutting issues, such as inclusion, good governance, and sustainability.
