UNICEF Funding Political Activities

PYALARA's non-political mission statement and noble goals have been richly rewarded by UNICEF, the United Nations Children's Fund, who chose the NGO as "a major strategic partner in Palestine."

The organization enjoys considerable funding from UNICEF itself with additional support from the International Red Cross and various European groups such as the Friedrich Naumann Stiftung, (which in turn is supported by the German government). The NGO has an annual budget of $144,000, which it is looking to enlarge.

Over the last few years PYALARA has built itself a steady base; a youth newspaper with a circulation of 10,000, a website, seminars, training groups and delegates to international NGO conferences such as the World Civil Society Forum, organized by the UN to strengthen international cooperation amongst Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and NGOs.
