Results of Momentum for Philanthropy Competition
The idea of Momentum for Philanthropy emerged from Dalia’s believes of the importance of philanthropy in the Palestinian society where Palestinians give back to their community.
The main focus of this competition is to highlight examples of Palestinian philanthropy to change the false image that Palestinians receive help but don't extend it.
This competition was a chance for Palestinian youth to refute this by bringing examples of Palestinian Philanthropy. Those examples of giving elaborate ability, sacrifice, and true desire to develop the different fields in the Palestinian society.

The 'Momentum for Philanthropy'
We believe that after generations of conflict, dispossession, fragmentation and dehumanization, Palestinians need and deserve to lead their own social change and sustainable development efforts. To this end, Dalia Association mobilizes the abundant resources of the worldwide Palestinian community and their friends—steadfastness, traditions, creativity, faith, expertise and money—and facilitates community decision-making about how these resources should be used to maximize real development.
