Education Project Officer (Maternity Replacement - Gaza
Rights Respected, People Protected
“A seven-year-old child in Gaza has already witnessed three wars in their lifetime. This is unacceptable.”
Jan Egeland, NRC’s Secretary General
Large-scale displacement took place during the wars of 1948 and 1967, when Israel occupied the West Bank, including East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip. Many of those displaced have never been able to return. There are currently over 5 million Palestinian refugees spread across Palestine, as well as in Jordan, Lebanon and Syria.
Through our programme in Palestine, we protect and assist those affected by or threatened with displacement. NRC Palestine has offices in Jerusalem, Ramallah, Hebron and Gaza, where we provide legal counselling to promote access to human rights, shelter, water and sanitation, and quality education. Nationally and globally, we advocate for the rights of displaced Palestinians. We work to reach Palestinians who are displaced or who face imminent threats of displacement. Together with local authorities and community-based organisations, we establish mechanisms monitoring the needs of displaced Palestinians, and promoting community-owned solutions.
