The Mountain: Inspiring Social Change in Palestine
This Campaign has ended on 12-2-2020
Campaign by: Thaghyeer Organization
The Mountain is a business incubator and a design thinking hub in the middle of the nature for young Palestinians. This campaign is made to build a Well, this well will sustain the Mountain incubator in addition to the surrounding farms.
Available resources in Palestine do not bridge the needs of the Palestinian context with the global trend of entrepreneurship and innovation abroad. Because of this, many initiatives and start-ups do not have a sustainable foundation that will lead them to lasting success. Along with this, young Palestinians need to be able to reconnect with themselves and their heritage in a way that will create meaningful initiatives for social and economic change that will benefit not just them, but their communities.
This is why we created “The Mountain”. The Mountain is a business incubator and a design thinking hub in the middle of the nature for young Palestinians, change Makers and Human Rights Defenders to strengthen their sense of identity and define their place within themselves, their society and the world so that they feel empowered to take action for social change and develop their own business and social projects. When individuals leave the Mountain, they will have the tools necessary to inspire others and to create innovation and change in their communities.
Since we are in the middle of nature where we have no access to water or electricity, and since we have to buy water monthly which is so expensive, not sustainable and hard to get, we thought that it will be a great chance to build a Well, which is a priority and the most important thing that we need urgently to sustain the Mountain Project, support the surrounding farms and to go green.
