Towards Gender-Responsive and Empowering Education for Refugee Girls and Boys in the West Bank and Gaza (TOGETHER) Project
Right To Play Palestine is launching a new project in collaboration with Global Affairs Canada (GAC) ‘Towards Gender-Responsive and Empowering Education for Refugee Girls and Boys in the West Bank and Gaza’ (TOGETHER) Project which will work towards improved, safe, supportive and gender-responsive education for girls and boys in grades 1-9 enrolled in every United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East (UNWRA) school in West Bank and Gaza. This will be achieved by i) integrating gender-responsive play-based learning into teaching practice by primary teachers; ii) equipping girls and boys to respond to and overcome conflict and violence (including gender-based violence) by building the capacity of school counselors and physical education teachers to deliver gender-responsive play-based psychosocial support activities; and iii) improving the response of school officials, UNRWA staff, mothers, fathers caregivers and community members to address the gender-based education needs of girls and boys. Collectively, these efforts will create safe and supportive learning environments and more equal and inclusive learning opportunities for Palestinian refugee girls and boys.
