The Gender-Responsive and Inclusive Technical and Vocational Education and Training in the West Bank including East Jerusalem (GRIT) is a six-year project (2019-2025) funded by the Canadian Government and implemented by the Lutheran World Federation Jerusalem Program (LWF Jerusalem) in partnership with Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR).
LWF Jerusalem is a country program of the larger Lutheran World Federation based in Geneva, Switzerland. The LWF Jerusalem Program is a multi-faceted program of support and capacity building to the Palestinian people that includes the Augusta Victoria Hospital, Village Outreach Program, and the Vocational Training Program, which has been operational for over 70 years. CLWR has been a partner of LWF for more than 65 years and the two organizations currently work together on humanitarian and development projects in 7 countries.
The GRIT project contributes to poverty reduction in East Jerusalem and the West Bank by supporting women, including women with disabilities (WWD) to engage in technical and vocational education and training (TVET) opportunities that are likely to lead to gainful employment or self-employment.
The primary objective of the project is to improve learning and employment outcomes for Palestinian women, including women with disabilities (WWD). This will be achieved by improving women’s access to training opportunities, strengthening the functional and technical skills of trainees, and bolstering the gender-responsiveness and inclusiveness of the broader Palestinian TVET system. The project is being implemented through several TVET institutes throughout the West Bank and East Jerusalem to provide wide geographic coverage.
