It contributes towards institutional development of the NGO sector by strengthening its capacity to manage project implementation issues such as, good governance, accountability and transparency, while being responsive to the needs of Palestinians, especially those who are poor and vulnerable and marginalized by ensuring equity in access to essential social services. Building the capacity of Palestinian NGOs will provide the basis for long-term sustainability in the provision of essential social services.
