ANERA is helping men and women in Palestinian refugee camps and poor communities around the region get through hard times. With your help we create jobs that build and upgrade schools, health clinics, and water wells. We design job training programs and help entrepreneurs set up small local businesses.
When families and communities have what they need to succeed, the impact of ANERA’s work lasts long after a project is completed. Learn more about our Economic Development work below.
