Sustainable Change for Development is a non-profit, non-governmental organization founded in 2019 by a group of Palestinian civil society activists who are committed to pave the road for democracy, development, and peace for the State of Palestine. SCD engages in a series of interventions that can lead to the establishment of a mutual understanding to work together and to find a sustainable path to a productive and healthy environment for effective state building.
The aim of SCD is to promote and enhance democratic values, support in ‘state-building readiness’, engage in environmental interventions, build various capacities of the Palestinian society, empowering youth, women and a culture of peace and act as a catalyst for non-violent communication within the Palestinian society and among its stakeholders. Furthermore, SCD aims to strengthen Palestinian grassroots movements and help them fulfil their social and political aspirations.
The Psychosocial Support Project is one of the main programs of SCD and it is being carried out in cooperation with the GIZ Civil Peace Service program “Defragmentation of society and prevention of violence through culture and sports in the context of the life of Palestinian refugees”. This project will be conducted during the time between August 2022 – June 2023. In this framework, SCD are seeking a consultant on Gender-Based Violence.
Since 2020, the Palestinian society has been, until now, facing new challenges and negative impacts due to the spread of Coronavirus and the latest developments regarding the occupation and the increase of violence affecting the life of the Palestinian society especially the vulnerable communities. No doubt that the pandemic and the measures taken to confront it have created several psychological effects on the Palestinian people in general; nevertheless, people living in marginalized area facing poverty, lack of perspectives and unemployment problems etc. have been affected more during the pandemic.
SCD is implementing activities with a focus on the social and psychological workers to strengthen their capacity and improving their mental health wellbeing in order to increase the quality of their work with their target groups. SCD is also focusing on raising awareness of the MHPSS and Civil peace topics in order to decrease the stigma within the society which is leading to more acceptance of seeking help regarding the MHPSS problematics and understanding that mental health is important as the physical health.
