In her turn, Lana Bandak indicated that the project contributes to enhancing the social, economic and political participation of  the people with disabilities, focusing to include them in inclusive social development processes, and supporting them and the local communities to organize and lead collective interventions towards community-based inclusive development.

The MOUs were signed at the Ministry of Local Government in Ramallah on January 5th  2022 in the presence of officials from the departments of Planning, Policies and Public Relations at the Ministry of Local Government, and representatives from QADER and the mayors of the five partner municipalities.
