In cooperation with “Fakhr Al Arab”, ICSPR holds a workshop on “The Impact of Volunteering on the Future of Youth”.
Participants recommended the necessity of strengthening the role of Palestinian youth in civil society institutions and preserving their rights and dignity, which are guaranteed by law, calling on the competent authorities to take legal measures against violators of owners of companies and institutions in society.
This came during a workshop held by ICSPR in cooperation with the Fakhr Al-Arab Center of the General Authority for Youth and Culture, to discuss “the impact of volunteering in local community institutions on the future of youth,” in the presence of a number of male and female graduates.
Muhammad Shaqoura, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Fakhr Al-Arab Center, said: “Volunteering in the Palestinian society is a lofty value that should be respected and appreciated, which requires concerted efforts for the renaissance of volunteer work within institutions, companies, and the local and civil society. The youth volunteers have presented the most wonderful images of sacrifice and redemption in several places, most notably during the ongoing wars on the Gaza Strip, the most recent of which was the aggression of the Israeli occupation during the month of May of 2021, where the youth teams were mobilized to provide relief to the displaced citizens due to the violent bombing, and the volunteers also contributed to removing the rubble and cleaning public junctions to facilitate the movement of citizens and vehicles.
