Our philosophy and approach

.  .

Access to good quality education is the key to unlocking the potential of individuals, which in turn brings benefits to their families and communities. By focusing on the educational needs of disadvantaged girls and young women in the Palestinian Territories the DSMT assisted a group that faces many obstacles: social, economic and political. However they are also a group that promises to be ‘part of the solution’ rather than the problem.

Evaluation feedback year on year has included many personal testimonies, which confirm the power of education to help individuals find a voice, to have ambitions, to recognise their capacity to influence their families and communities for the good and to contribute to wider society. DSMT’s image of a tree with roots, branches and leaves was designed to represent these processes.
