Palestine

Palestinians live in very precarious conditions as a result of the ongoing conflict, the fragmentation of the West Bank and the blockade of the Gaza Strip. Children suffer from various protection concerns that are caused by the conflict and the widespread violence against children at the community and family levels. Tdh focuses its activities on the provision of child protection services for vulnerable children and their families, including children in conflict with the law, child labourers and responding to the humanitarian needs.

What we do

Child protection

Tdh strengthens the child protection system by introducing laws and mechanisms in prevention, response and reintegration of children with child protection concerns. In our protection centre in northern Gaza, we support children and youth exposed to or at risk of child labour, out of school children and children at high risk of drop out through comprehensive protection, education and livelihood services. We also work with children and youth exposed to violence and survivors of sexual gender-based violence.

Access to Justice

Tdh works to strengthen the justice system in Palestine through child-friendly policies, capacity building, evidence-based advocacy and tailored awareness-raising interventions. We try to enhance the access to effective non-custodial measures for the rehabilitation of children in conflict and in contact with the law. Our approach targets children and youth as well as caregivers, communities, formal and informal justice actors.

Humanitarian aid

With the aim of promoting the wellbeing of children affected by the unprecedented deterioration of Gaza's political, economic and social conditions, Tdh’s humanitarian response and assistance involve integrated multi-sectoral protection services to vulnerable children and their families, particularly children injured during the Great Return of March Demonstrations.
