The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) Programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide.
Volunteerism can transform the pace and nature of development and it benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer. UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for volunteerism globally, encouraging partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing volunteers.

In most cultures volunteerism is deeply embedded in long-established, ancient traditions of sharing and support within the communities. In this context, UNV volunteers take part in various forms of volunteerism and play a role in development and peace together with co-workers, host agencies
and local communities.

In all assignments, UNV volunteers promote volunteerism through their action and conduct. Engaging in volunteer activity can effectively and positively enrich their understanding of local and social realities, as well as create a bridge between themselves and the people in their host community. This will make the time they spend as UNV volunteers even more rewarding and productive.
The Ministry of Women’s Affairs (MoWA) was established in November 2003 as a response to the Palestinian women’s struggle to achieve their national, political and socio- economic rights. MoWA’s mission is to empower Palestinian women, strengthen their capacities and status in order for women to assume ownership of their human, socio-economic and national rights. MoWA recognizes that an active civil society with full human rights which incorporates gender mainstreaming as a fundamental tool is intrinsic for the democratic state-building process and sustainable development. To this end, it is critical for the state to support and facilitate the endeavours of both governmental and non-governmental organizations that promote women’s empowerment. MoWA strives to ensure that women’s needs are integrated and addressed across all of the government’s development policies, palns, and programmes. Similarly, MoWA focuses on gender sensitization at the grassroots level through establishing effective networking channels with civil society organizations. Monitoring the institutionalization and implementation of gender sensitive policies, as well as discrimination against women is an ongoing commitment by MoWA.
