How It Works

The project (1) provide agribusiness and entrepreneurship training for 120 Palestinian and Israeli youth, primarily women and men aged 20-35 (2) facilitate the creation of cross-border agribusiness enterprises (i.e., joint ventures or linked businesses) through small grants and technical assistance, and (3) leverage the relationships in these networks to promote reconciliation through communications and cross-border stakeholder workshops.

The joint training includes: acquaintance, business plan writing skills, networking skills, introduction of new agricultural technologies, and production and marketing.

The resulting businesses will anchor networks of farmers that extend across the Israel-Palestine border. They will deliver direct social and economic impacts through increased productivity, income, and cross-border trade.
