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.
PROVIDE HUMANITARIAN CARE TO PALESTINIANS
In the past week, Palestinians have been facing several devastating attacks, including evictions from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah, a violent raid on Al-Aqsa Mosque and airstrikes from the Israeli Defense Forces into Gaza. Hundreds of Palestinians have died and thousands have been injured. Taawon is fundraising to collect support for emergency medical needs and first responders on the ground as well as other humanitarian aid. Donations made to this campaign will ensure that Palestinians are cared for while they endure incredible brutality.
