Interactive e-learning platform development
Expression of interest for Interactive e-learning platform development
ACTED is an international non-profit, non-political and non-religious humanitarian organization established in Afghanistan in 1993 and headquartered in Paris, France. Operational in 35 countries, ACTED’s vocation is to support vulnerable populations affected by wars, natural disasters and/or economic and social crises, and to accompany them in building a better future. ACTED started its activities in the occupied Palestinian territory in May 2007, through food security interventions in the West Bank and then in Gaza. ACTED is currently implementing projects funded by ECHO, UNOCHA, AFD and DGD, which aim to protect vulnerable households in the West Bank and to strengthen civil society actors across the occupied Palestinian territory.
ACTED and its partner MA’AN Development Centre are implementing a three-year project “Supporting sustainable and inclusive growth in the Palestinian territory through digital inclusion,” in the West Bank and in Gaza, funded by Agence Française de Développement (AFD).
MA'AN Development Center is an independent Palestinian development organization and training institution established in January 1989. MA'AN partners with NGOs, CBOs, & Popular Committees in the poorest and most marginalized areas of the occupied Palestinian territory, and aims to enhance people’s steadfastness and self-reliance, empower them to take a lead in developing communities, and to improve their quality of life. The organization works with 120-150 grassroots organizations on an annual basis while channeling its efforts towards building their capacities in organizational development, human resources, and the operation and development of their administrative, financial and monitoring systems. Ultimately, MA’AN's program development approach is based on five primary methods, including lobbying & advocacy; institutional, organizational and human resource development; service provision; awareness raising; and lastly, networking, coordination, consultation and cooperation.
The project’s general objective is to bypass the obstacles to development in the occupied Palestinian territories by exploiting the potential of digital tools. The specific objective of the project is to enhance young Palestinians’ employability through the improvement of their digital perspectives. These objectives will be achieved through the reinforcement of capacities and coordination mechanisms for key digital stakeholders, improvement of access to digital literacy resources for young Palestinians, and the provision of resources and tools for Palestinian young entrepreneurs to materialize their business ideas.
