What is Buildpalestine?
At BuildPalestine, we support the inspiring and growing social innovation sector in Palestine by connecting individuals looking to support innovative projects with those making an impact within their communities.
As we approach 75 years of occupation, hopes become crucial. Hope for a better tomorrow. Hope for new opportunities. Hope to make a difference. This is especially true for those who continue living in Palestine, steadfast and committed to the community.
Social innovation is nothing new to Palestine. We find solutions in the midst of challenges everyday. And so, BuildPalestine is here to support the ecosystem and encourage each person who has an idea for their community to take action and make a difference. We are a platform to connect individuals looking to support with those making an impact.
