PARC employs a wide variety of approaches in designing its programs to most effectively and efficiently meet the needs of rural and marginalized Palestinian communities in achieving sustainable and integrated rural development. After assessing communities’ needs, PARC addresses these needs via interventions rooted in the concepts of building capacity and actively consulting, involving, training, and empowering community shareholders in the development process. PARC seeks to build community organizations and coalitions as well as broaden and deepen partnerships between non-governmental grassroots initiatives and government institutions. Its programs are designed to forge links between different sectors of society locally, regionally, and globally, and provide a platform for exchanging ideas, transferring knowledge, and sharing experiences. PARC’s programs take a holistic approach to development, addressing needs across sectors and empowering its beneficiaries socially, economically, and politically.
