ADMINISTRATOR AND FINANCE COORDINATOR

PALESTINE OFFICE

BACKGROUND

Alianza por la Solidaridad (Alianza) is a Spanish NGO existing since more than 30 years and present in the Middle East since 1993. Since 2009 it has developed a process of sectorial and geographical targeting for its interventions, which meant the prioritization of women’s rights and gender equality. Alianza por la Solidaridad (Alianza) in the Middle East works within three main lines of action: 

  • Prevention and response for Gender Based Violence, individual and community approach. 
  • Women´s economic empowerment. 
  • Women´s participation and active citizenship. 

Alianza maintains stable local partners with whom it works in a sustained manner and deepening not the relations and regular contacts through the office in the field, but a fluid communication and analysis of the changes caused by the protracted conflict-related crisis and humanitarian situation in Palestine. Engaging men is a key piece to achieve meaningful results in gender equality, therefore, since 2017 there is a progressive work on implementing a new masculinities approach with community members and with CBOs, partners and other key actors. Alianza works closely with its partners and support their work in a manner that represent Alianza and the partners values. Alianza has extensive experience and expertise on women´s rights and there is a high degree of knowledge about the environment and only relation with the population, civil society organizations, other humanitarian actors and local public entities. 

Alianza por la Solidaridad is member of Action Aid since June 2018. Action Aid and Alianza share the idea that when people become aware that their future is in their hands and when they organize to challenge power structures and contribute to the betterment and changing of institutions, changes can succeed. These changes should take place on a global scale in order to generate maximum impact, and they should be rooted in the political values of solidarity and internationalism. In addition, for Action Aid and Alianza, Social justice, gender equality, and climate justice succeed through individual and collective actions that actively change inequitable and unjust power relationships, either hidden, visible, or invisible, from the home to local, national, and international spaces. The empowerment of people that live in poverty and marginalization, and of women and youth is a crucial part of creating these changes. Collective efforts and fights are stronger when they are bound together through solidarity, campaigns, and common causes between communities, organizations, and social movements and other allies to influence local and global institutions and public policy.
