The NGO Development Center (NDC) is a Palestinian non-profit, non-governmental organization supporting Palestinian NGOs and their representative entities to more effectively respond to the needs of the most disadvantaged groups in Palestinian society. Through the provision of financial and technical support as well as the development of value systems that promote principles of social justice, integrity and transparency, NDC contributes to the achievement of development priorities and the realization of an effective and sustainable civil society in the State of Palestine. 

 

 

The NGO Development Center (NDC) has made momentous strides in empowering Palestinians by Palestinians throughout 2014. Both our grant-making and sector development programs were expanded to address NGO sector needs in innovative and effective ways. Building on our successes, NDC continues to represent a leading institution in the Palestinian NGO sector.

In 2014, NDC concluded the second phase of the Human Rights/Good Governance program, which over the course of 6 years provided NGOs in the human rights and good governance sectors with crucial support, both financial and technical.

 

 

In 2013, we witnessed our commitments and efforts bear fruit on many fronts. While grant making and sector development remain the core of our work, there are a number of achievements and aspects that we would like to devote special attention to. 2013 was the closing year for the Forth Palestinian NGO Project (PNGO IV) with most components ending as planned.

 

2012 was a year of innovation for NDC. We launched a new funding mechanism that supports  innovative approaches to development within the Palestinian NGO sector, and implemented an  ambitious targeted capacity-building program, which assisted 77 NGOs. NDC also maintained its  commitment to encouraging precedent-setting impact within the NGO sector. The Palestinian NGO Strategic Framework, initiated by NDC in partnership with the four Palestinian NGO Networks was developed following extensive consultation with the private and public sectors, NGOs, academia, and the general public

 
 

In the past year, NDC has increased its funding disbursements, signed additional grant agreements with 43 NGOs and continued to pursue innovative approaches to project implementation and sector development. Innovation in both service delivery and the structure of development processes underpins the philosophy of NDC. Our commitment to supporting the most vulnerable Palestinian communities whilst constantly striving to challenge our own instincts and accepted modes of activity ensures that NDC remains a unique and vibrant part of the Palestinian NGO community.

 
 

Despite the difficult political context, our NGO and community support continues to rise. The generosity of our donors is encouraging and gives us full confidence to continue all our programs in Palestine and has strengthened our impact, particularly in grant making and NGO sector development. We know that these same donors join us in being very proud of NDC’s efforts to be a main mechanism of aid towards NGOs.
