MBI Al Jaber Foundation Supports Society Voice Foundation

The MBI Al Jaber Foundation supported the Society Voice Foundation (SVF) for community and civil work, a non-profit, non-governmental and non-partisan organisation established in Gaza in 2001 with a mission to empower Palestinian civil society by designing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating a series of community actions. This was achieved through a grant made to “Empowering Women in Gaza”.

Through this project, the director of the SVF and MBI Alumnus, Ibrahim Natil, aimed to build leadership capacities and knowledge in political participation, legislation and the democratic governance of 90 young women leaders, aged 18 to 25, by training them in the principles and techniques of political and social participation, and women’s rights. The Society Voice Foundation now has three different offices in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, and has cooperated with more than ten reputable donors in the last four years, such as the OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID), the European Commission, Care International, Women’s World Day of Prayer (WWDP), the Arab Fund for Social and Economic Development, the Westminster Foundation for Democracy and the Middle East Partner Initiative (MEPI). In 2007, the SVF implemented a project with the European Commission entitled “Empower Women’s Political and Social Participation in the Gaza Strip.” Currently, the SVF runs three different projects: “Increase Process of Public Monitoring, Accountability, Transparency of Municipality Services”, “Empower Future Young Leadership on Parliamentary Work and Monitoring Corruption” and “Psycho-Social Support for Gazan Children”. The SVF seeks to continue and develop its operations in the Palestinian territories to contribute to the development of Palestinian society and its social change processes.
