Background

Palestinian children experience the same challenges as other children worldwide.  These include, overcoming learning difficulties; coping with the pressures of growing-up; and social inclusion. Nonetheless, Palestinian children have to face these universal challenges amidst extenuating circumstances. Decades of occupation and annexation, increasing poverty, and constant political uncertainty significantly decrease the possibilities for “normal” childhood.
