MENACatalyst Palestine was founded in 2016 with the overall goal of transforming the socio-economic landscape of the country. We do this via a series of integrated programs that build on the competencies of emerging professionals, self-starters, changemakers, and enterprising youth and connecting them with networks of support on a cross-regional and global scale.
We work with local stakeholders and leading international organizations on the design and implementation of impactful empowerment programs. To date, we have initiated many programs in partnership with developmental and humanitarian organizations such as the Red Cross, GIZ, KOICA, and the Welfare Association. We have also cooperated with many regional stakeholders on joint networking events, access opportunities, outreach, and policy advocacy, this includes the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, the Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Empowerment, the Palestinian Prime Minister's Office, Wamda, MIT Enterprise Pan Arab, the Next Society, and the UK: MENA Hub, among others.
We are continuously engaging the donor community and committed stakeholders on the design and implementation of country-specific interventions that take into consideration the contextual nuances and ever-evolving developmental landscape faced by Palestinian communities daily.
