Rebuilding to Remain
in Palestine's Area C
Seeking to live on their own land, fifteen families are building houses with village-issued building permits in the Palestinian village of Al Aqaba in the West Bank's Area C. They invested their sweat and savings to build their homes and they are asking to borrow additional funds to finish so they can move in. Help fund Rebuilding to Remain to provide affordable loans to finish the homes. Repaid loans will be re-lent to other families to build homes and hope despite the challenges of occupation.

Race of Recognition Dinner
April 23rd, 2017
Google Maps has finally added 236 previously-omitted Palestinian villages to its maps of the West Bank. To celebrate, we hosted a dinner and award ceremony to present Rebuilding Alliance's Peacemaker Award to those whose hard work and dedication made this possible. In addition to Right to Movement - Palestine (accepted by co-founder George Zeidan), Bimkom: Planners for Planning Rights, and the Geospatial Information Systems Department at the Palestine Ministry of Local Governments, the Peacemaker Award was presented to Rep. Anna Eshoo, who has been tireless in the pursuit of justice. Watch part of her acceptance speech below.
