The Belgian Development Agency is preparing a public survey
to assess the citizens’ perception about the changes brought by the LGRDP (Local
Government Reform and Development Program) and RHC (Regeneration of Historic
Centers) projects. The results of the survey, that will be finalized by March
2018, will serve as a guidance for future interventions.
Newly graduated students, from the targeted localities, are being trained by consultants to conduct the interviews. They are learning how to conduct a survey and how to analyze the collected data. This way they will have the opportunity to gain field experience.
Nehal Barghothi from the village of Abbood is one of the trainees. She recently graduated from the Al-Quds Open University and she said that her participation is the perfect opportunity to improve her skills, experience, work proficiency and economic status. “This type of work will help me build relations with members of society and it will provide me with additional skills for the labor market.”
