What is IPYL ?
 A non-governmental, not-for-profit, non-partisan
organization created in 1997 by a group of young
Palestinians.
 A youth organization that targets young Palestinians and
youth led organizations between 15 and 35 years old.
IPYL MISSION
Empowering Palestinian YOUTH
Against social, economical, cultural and political
challenges facing the Palestinian society through
variety of local- regional projects and international
relations.
Why IPYL?
The reality of Palestinian youth is different from any other
place:
 Israeli occupation is leaving deep marks on the Palestinian
youth’s attitude and aspirations;
 Palestinian youth participation in public life is very limited
and never on a decision making level;
 Uncertainness about the future perspectives and hopelessness
reinforce the feeling of alienation, impotence and confusion
among youth.
IPYL works to provide some hope
for a generation that holds
the present and the future of Palestine………..
Why IPYL in HEBRON?
HEBRON, a special case:
 Society in Hebron District is very conservative and with the population still largely
adhering to tribal/family allegiances rather than the rule of law and democratic
participation.
 Cultural and situational factors have wide implications on the youngest
generations.
 The Hebron District is largely untouched and unnoticed by the plethora of
development projects undertaken elsewhere in Palestine.
 NGOs mission in Hebron have been limited to straight service delivery and there
is an absence of integrative action and approach for local youth.
IPYL’ s OBJECTIVES:
To encourage young people to:
Have an active community involvement.
Understand the importance of democracy, human
rights principles and international humanitarian
laws.
Develop a spirit of independence and creativity.
Recognize and respect cultural diversity.
Work with young people in the neighboring
countries to achieve a real peace.
IPYL’ s OBJECTIVES:
 To promote an end to discrimination and the
respect of diversities.
 To assist Palestinian society’s underprivileged &
marginalize sectors.
 To encourage equal opportunities in all social
sectors, stressing liberal values, secular ethos,
democratic principles, intercultural learning and
community development.
