The occupied Palestinian territory

The occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) comprises the areas of The West Bank and the Gaza Strip. They are at the centre of one of the highest-profile and longest struggles of modern times.

International Service has been providing support to the Palestinian people for more than 30 years. Our approach has been to support our local partner organisations to enable them to best serve their communities and contribute to the eventual development of a stable and democratic Palestinian State.

In recent years we have piloted the use of teams of organisational development workers who are able to provide support to multiple partners. This has proved very successful and has attracted a great deal of interest from local and international agencies. We are now seeking to build this as a sustainable and diversified funding model, which we will then seek to share across all our countries.
