Al-Burj Haya

The project aims to empower and strengthen the resilience of Jerusalemites, by facilitating the access of children, youth and women from vulnerable neighborhoods in Jerusalem and the Old City to regular social, cultural and educational activities and opportunities, especially in Burj Al-Luqluq Community Center and Society.

The project helps the beneficiaries to participate constructively in their communities by contributing to their local economic development. The project also encourages youth to improve their social and economic conditions to provide a better life for the Palestinian residents of Jerusalem. Currently, this is the only viable solution to allow the (mostly poor) Palestinian residents to continue living in Jerusalem.

The project is funded by the Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development.
