Youth groups across Gaza rallied together and become the first responders helping, elder, children and women in need. They found strength in adversity and demonstrated to be a source of resilience and resourcefulness in the local community.
To understand how we can help youth to help others in the Gaza, UNFPA and its local partner, Sharek, conducted this study on the effects of the war on youth.
The study is the only assessment that reflects youth issues, challenges, as expressed by themselves, and the vital voluntary work youth initiated to help the displaced people in need. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the many young volunteers who helped in the field work of this assessment.
