UNDP response to inauguration of school in Gaza

19 Jul 2012

As part of its mandate, UNDP’s Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People supports a wide range of development initiatives, including education projects such as building schools.

UNDP implemented the construction of this school that was upon completion,  handed over to the Ministry of Education.

The implementation was done under the “direct execution modality” without any involvement of the de-facto authorities in Gaza.

UNDP was also not involved or present at the opening ceremony and has no role whatsoever in naming or in any other activity related to the school.

Through its work, UNDP and the UN system at-large aims to build lasting peace and prosperity throughout the region.
