Palestine

The Gaza Strip occupies an area of 576 square kilometres (140 square miles) in between Egypt, Israel and the Mediterranean coast. Gaza’s population is estimated at 1.5 million, of which approximately 480,000 are registered as refugees with UNRWA. Conflict and economic decline has forced 1.1 million Gazans to depend on food aid in order to survive. Between June and September 2007, the number of households with an income of less than US$1.20 soared from 55% to 70%. In light of the situation in Gaza, ROTA and its strategic partners developed two programs to ensure the continuous and uninterrupted education of the troubled territory’s children.
