Initiative summary:

Tanwer (“Enlightenment”), a registered Palestinian non-governmental organization based in Nablus, works to increase youth participation in civic affairs. With EED funding, the project seeks to increase the role of youth in the decision-making process in six particularly marginalized areas of the West Bank: Balata Refugee camp, Old city of Nablus, Jenin refugee camp, Jenin city and villages, Tulkarem refugee camp, and Tulkarem city and villages. It plans to do this by forming youth working groups in each of the six communities.
