In partnership with and the Source of Hope Foundation, Mercy Corps launched the Arab Developer Network Initiative (ADNI) to connect tech-savvy Palestinian youth with training and career opportunities in the global digital marketplace.

The West Bank and Gaza is full of educated young people with few job opportunities; surrounded by conflict and unable to leave, they turn to technology to build a brighter future. ADNI aims to link them with worldwide businesses to use their expertise and provide them with mentors and funding to launch startups.

Reaching over 1,000 young Palestinian web entrepreneurs in just the first year, plans are in the works to expand ADNI's scope in a variety of countries where Mercy Corps works.
