About this Fund
This agency fund supports Taawon (formerly the Welfare Association) in Palestine, a leading Palestinian nonprofit organization, working in Palestine and in Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon.
With programs in education, community development, emergency aid, and cultural preservation, Taawon aims to achieve the following:
- Encourage the preservation of Palestinian culture and identity and the revival of Palestinian cultural heritage.
- Develop, upgrade and empower Palestinian individuals to become productive, professional and capable of achieving their goals and aspirations and to contribute to economic and social change.
- Empower local institutions and assist them in providing services that respond to the needs of Palestinians by employing the requirements of good governance and achieving sustainability.
- Provide rapid and effective response to any emergency situation that may put the life, security or health of Palestinians at risk.
SUPPORTING FARMERS AND FAMILIES-IN-NEED
In an effort to support local vendors in the Gaza strip and help families in need during the month of Ramadan, Taawon is looking to provide 5,000 marginalized families with food sourced from 600 farmers. One donation of $200 gives one family food for the entire month.
Additional Information about the Taawon Fund
Taawon also administers the Orphans of Gaza 2014 Program, which provides a comprehensive, long-term approach to strategically meet the needs of 2,500 orphans, from infancy through age 22. From healthcare and housing, to school uniforms and university fees, to vocational training and employability skills, the program surrounds each orphan with a fully-integrated support system throughout the critical years of childhood and adolescence.
Taawon is the only organization of its kind – give now to make a real difference for Palestinians!
