WeWorld - GVC is an Italian NGO born from the merger of the NGO "We World", active in Italy and abroad in the protection of minors and women, and "GVC – Gruppo Volontariato Civile”, operating in over 25 countries around the world with projects of humanitarian aid and development cooperation. The merger between the two forces and the complementarity of experience and skills led to the creation of WW-GVC. In the Palestinian context, WW-GVC maintains total continuity with the work implemented by GVC since 1992, guaranteeing its experience, historical memory, and fieldwork skills.

We collaborate with public institutions, cultural associations, cooperatives, and Italian and European NGOs, organizing seminars, conferences, exhibits and festivals, laboratories in school and training courses for teachers. We produce educational materials and carry out communication activities on sensitive issues such as differences, human rights, women's issues, sustainable trade, and biodiversity.

WW-GVC is active in the occupied Palestinian territory since 1992. We started our interventions in the health sector by creating the first transfusion health center in the Gaza strip, in operation to this date. Nowadays WW-GVC works in emergency and development aiming at:

  1. Increasing the access to and the integrated management of water resources.
  2. Increasing the protection of vulnerable communities.
  3. Contributing to local socio-economic development.

The consolidation of the Palestinian Authorities’ institutional infrastructure is open to fostering democratic participation of civil society, through the improvement of representative processes and the implementation of specific effective tools to promote dialogue. These criteria, together with the empowerment of vulnerable communities and people, should lead to any kind of intervention, preparing both decentralized institutions and civil society to better advocate for a final recognition of Palestinian statehood.

WW-GVC focuses strategically on 4 main sectors for its development program, namely:

-              Local Development and Governance

-              Integrate Water Resource Management 

  • LRRD: Linking Relief, Rehabilitation, and Development
  • Integrated Protection

Gender mainstream, special attention to vulnerable categories, community-based approach, and good governance are cross-cutting issues included in all WW-GVC interventions.
