Institutional Capacity Building in Favor of General Administrative of Persons with disabilities’ Affairs – Ministry of Social Affairs
Through the joint project between QADER for Community Development, and within the framework of the municipalities support projects in the social sector, in the beginning of 2011, the Ministry of Social Affairs received a financial grant from the Palestinian Municipalities Support Program (the Italian government) through the Ministry of Local Governance, to implement a project entitled “Institutional Capacity Building in Favor of General Administration of Persons with Disabilities’ Affairs" project. The project incorporates two main components: the first involves supporting the general administration to monitor and facilitate the implementation of a model for developing the responsibilities and duties of local authorities in several municipalities in the Hebron, Bethlehem and Jericho governorates; while the second involves the institutional capacity building in favor of general administration on the level of organization and programming, based on the comprehensive development plan set forth by the Ministry of Social Affairs, and the social prevention sector strategy. In this context, the project was implemented in partnership with QADER as the Ministry technical partner.
The general goal of the project
To contribute to improving the living standard of persons with disabilities, promote their social, economic, cultural and political reality, and contribute to the development and institutionalization of the work of the social sector to serve persons with disabilities.
