Young women’s livelihoods in the Seam Zones, Occupied Palestinian Territory – Challenges and solutions

The East Jerusalem YMCA’s Women’s Training Programme and YWCA-YMCA of Sweden are implementing a three-year project which aims to reduce poverty levels and social exclusion among disadvantaged young women in Ramallah and Salfit districts.

The project aims to increase the understanding of local and national government decision makers on the challenges facing young women in the Seam Zones and to support their capacity to develop gender and youth-sensitive plans for their communities with the active participation of young women in the communities identified in the Seam Zones.

This report details the work undertaken and presents recommendations for a variety of stakeholders in the Occupied Palestinian Territory to improve livelihood opportunities for young women in Seam Zone areas.
