Decentralized evaluation of UNRWA's Gender Initiative 2014-2017

Thursday, February 1, 2018

Since January 2008 UNRWA Gaza Field Office (GFO) has pioneered a large programme to address gender inequality in the Gaza Strip. The Gender Initiative promotes Palestinian women’s social and economic empowerment, ensuring that women and girls have access to recreational activities outside home, increasing their income-generating opportunities, building knowledge on gender-based violence and strengthening means to protect women and girls from it.
