El-Nahda Association for Development and Growth (NADG)

Project: Locally grown produce for families in need 
Founded: 2007
Location: Beit Lahia, Gaza Strip

El-Nahda has implemented a program to counter food uncertainty by providing locally grown vegetables (tomatoes, eggplants, lemon, cabbage, carrots, onions and potatoes) to families in need. The Jerusalem Fund’s partners at El-Nahda have identified 100 low-income families numbering over 1,000 people to receive this crucial aid. This project also helps the local farmers by purchasing their produce on a weekly basis, and directly benefits the local economy by keeping the flow of money locally in the community.
