More with less: Letting go in Palestine

Project: External Project: Local to Global Protection 4th January 2018

A handful of villages in the occupied Palestinian territories (oPt) are experimenting with a different approach to protection and resilience for their communities. Supported by a national NGO (EJ YMCA), women, men and youth in the villages decide on what they see as the main challenges and threats – and then get direct control over cash grants to act on their own.

This is a story about how less outside control appears to prompt more and better results. The Arabic version can be found here.

Thank you to Local to Global Protection for sharing this learning. More resources can be found on their website.
