Diaspora Driven Development: KTH and PTP Forge Partnership for Palestinian Progress

 Palestine Techno Park (PTP) and Know Thy Heritage (KTH) have entered a partnership memorandum of understanding (MOU) to pave a promising way forward in serving Palestine through the Palestinian diaspora.  The plan outlines ways in which KTH and PTP can work collaboratively with local partners and globally to make a positive impact on Palestinian business, social and civic organizations, focusing on startups especially by women in Gaza and the West Bank.

The development of Palestine is a testament to the collective vision, collaborative efforts, and contributions of individuals who are deeply invested in their homeland, along with the solidarity and support from Palestinian diaspora. The Palestinian Diaspora brings a wealth of experience, expertise, and a vast network of dedicated professionals across various fields such as, advocacy, finance, law, engineering, medicine, communications including traditional and social media, and information technology.

PTP and KTH eagerly anticipate future collaborative efforts, aiming to expand partnerships with companies, institutions, and NGOs worldwide. This expansion aims to enhance outsourcing to local Palestinian talents and provide internship/volunteer placement opportunities across various organizations throughout Palestine. These initiatives will enable individuals to deepen their understanding of Palestine while actively contributing to its development. To accomplish this, conferences, webinars, and delegations will be organized.
