PROJECT ROZANA INTERNATIONAL IS SWISS BOUND
Project Rozana is aiming to become an international development organisation. It is working on formally establishing Project Rozana International as a Swiss Association with a permanent presence in Geneva.
Our international arm is capable of delivering significant, long-term and sustainable outcomes, which reflect its core mission of building bridges to better understanding between Israelis and Palestinians through health.
According to International Board Chair, Ron Finkel AM, the signs of Project Rozana’s global significance are reflected in the nature of the relationships being built. These include the Palestinian Authority, the UN, and related agencies such as the WHO, and governments including the EU, Australia and Canada.
Mr Finkel said,
“They are also reflected in the nature of the programs that we are developing. These will have long-term and significant impact on the delivery of health outcomes to Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza and on the Palestinian health network through capacity-building initiatives.”
The Project Rozana International Association structure will provide a level of formality and give Project Rozana International a presence independent of the affiliates. Each of the Chairs of the founding member affiliates, Australia, Canada, Israel and the USA, approved and signed the Articles of Association.
Mr Finkel said he believes the process will be finalised within the next few weeks.
He also extended the organization’s thanks to Geneva-based lawyer, Arun Chandrasekharan, for his support. Mr Chandrasekharan is also on the Board of B8ofHope, a Swiss not-for-profit that has some overlap with the work of Project Rozana.
