UnaVision Palestine

Partners for Sustainable Development (PSD) is a Palestinian non-profit organization established in 2009 to equip Palestinian youth with the skills and knowledge required by an increasingly complex and demanding 21st century. Over the past ten years, PSD's programs have unleashed the potential of communities by supporting their grass roots activities and social enterprises. Programmatic interventions implemented by PSD have focused on youth engagement in their communities through formal and informal education, ICT, and entrepreneurship.

 What we do:

  • Help youth develop the skills required for the fourth industrial revolution (IR4) and scale-up innovative solutions to some of societies' greatest problems via training and mentoring
  • Expanding youth's and women's employability by providing them with in-demand professional skills and know-how to pursue online freelancing opportunities
  • Strengthening youth's agency and belonging through service of their communities  
  • Work with trans-Mediterranean partners to stimulate exchange and dialogue, empower youth and women, and encourage media-literacy
  • Digitize the Palestinian curriculum and develop Arabic- language educational content
  • Create "Edu-tainment" games that complement the curriculum or address specific social issues

How we do it:

  • By leveraging on public-private partnerships with ministries, municipalities, educational institutions, private foundations, companies, and service providers
  •  By utilizing holistic approaches in program design and implementation that incorporate human-centered design, design thinking, service learning and civic engagement, design thinking, and learner centered pedagogy
