The program aims to deepen community work in the Palestinian rural areas, find new ways for communities there to work together and promote community service.

The program also aims to strengthen people’s experience in community engagement through involving them in implementing community projects and programs that benefit rural areas‏ ‏and address their needs.

In cooperation with the local institutions in the rural areas, the program’s volunteers established sub-centers there to implement community programs similar to those implemented by the main centre.
