What We Do

Community Involvement

Recognizing that Palestine refugees are the experts on their lives and possess invaluable knowledge of about their own local environments, all camp improvement plans call for the full participation of camp residents. Before improvements are carried out, ICIP organizes working groups with various stakeholders within the community, with a special emphasis on its most vulnerable members: women, children and refugees with disabilities. The needs identified by these working groups are then formulated into action plans, designed and implemented in a participatory method. 

Palestine refugees are involved at every stage of the process: providing input through working groups, assessing the impact of projects on their lives and actually carrying out the improvements through employment in construction.
