Intense and daily travel restrictions imposed by Israel since its occupation of Gaza and the West Bank have stunted the ability of 3.4 million Palestinians to achieve education training and economic development particularly in Gaza. Each year millions of dollars invested in Palestinian development projects are wasted because of travel restrictions that prevent people from accessing them. Gisha promotes the long term development of Palestinian society by changing Israeli policies to facilitate the free movement of people and goods necessary to invest in human and economic resources. Gisha which in Hebrew means access brings the claims and narratives of Palestinian institutions and individuals before Israeli courts (through litigation) and before Israeli public opinion (through public information) to demonstrate the common Israeli Palestinian interest in allowing young people to develop the skills they need to build a peaceful prosperous society.
