Joint Advocacy Initiative (YMCA-YWCA)


Beit Sahour


About Us

It is an initiative between the East Jerusalem YMCA and YWCA of Palestine lunched in the year 2000 based on a Palestinian need resulted from the second Intifada.

The Joint Advocacy Initiative (JAI) work aims to bring about change at the local level through involving Palestinian organizations and individuals to work to gain their basic rights and to engage in processes to effect social change.

At the international level, its work aims to channel changes in the World YWCA/YMCA, CROs and civil society organizations to create a global movement that puts pressure on Israel to implement international law and respond to the UN resolutions concerning the occupation of Palestine by exposing injustice and guiding actions.
