Yafa Cultural Center

International website for YCC. Promoting education, mental health, human-rights and democracy.

Our goal

YCC is a non-profit cultural NGO that was formed through an initiative by the Committee for the Defense of Palestinian Refugee Rights in 1996. YCC works to improve the cultural and intellectual condition of Palestinians by providing them with a space to develop their talents and skills and to enrich their awareness of their national rights through civic education particularly on democracy and human rights. This is done through a wide variety of activities and programs that are designed and implemented by distinguished volunteers with much experience. Through this work, YCC aims to empower Palestinians in fostering a strong and independent identity, and to enable positive accomplishments in the future while escaping the negative effects of the on-going Israeli occupation.
