Short description:
One of PYALARA main objectives is to prevent young Palestinians from becoming thoroughly frustrated as a result of the harsh conditions under which they are forced to live. We therefore encourage young Palestinians to express themselves through writing, talking, and other forms of communication in order to maintain a connection with the community.
The objectives of the NGO are to give a voice to Palestinian youth through the media, to raise awareness on the issues of youth rights and a healthy lifestyle, to expand awareness of one's roots and identity, environment and culture, and to create a lively Palestinian youth culture. Further activities are the formation of a cadre of 25 youth leaders informed on the dangers of drug abuse, the implementation of training workshops for the youth leaders in anti-drug awareness raising.
