Since 2009, RI has been working in Palestinian territories, focusing on relief, women's empowerment, and youth education. RI's main objective has been both to provide crisis relief and to develop Palestinian civil society.
Programs in the Palestinian territories have worked to build communities that are better able to channel human and financial capital toward sustainable development, to improve economic equality for women by improving the enforcement of national workplace discrimination legislation, and to assist poorer farming families in cultivating and producing crops that provide a livelihood.
RI has an office in Ramallah, and has implemented programs in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and Gaza's Rafah and Khan Yunis eastern areas.
