On Tuesday, May 24th 2011, from 4:30pm to 6:30pm, Dalia Association (Dalia) launched their Philanthropy Campaign with an event held at Café La Vie. The event was ticketed with all proceeds going to support Palestinian self-determination in the development process through grassroots mobilization with Dalia Association. Friends of Dalia, Dalia beneficiaries, Dalia Board members, and Dalia staff all attended the event to learn more about how Palestinian philanthropy can be used to help Palestinians control their own development process.

At the event members from Burqa, Zawiya, and Safa villages all announced their intention to open Village Funds to be managed by Dalia Association to support grassroots development in their communities. Each respective Fund will be used to support Palestinian-led development with Village Committees using a democratic and transparent process to decide how funds are used with clear reporting guidelines not only for donors who contribute but also to community members who are to benefit from the use of funds. Diaspora Palestinians from these villages can make regular contributions to the Village Funds to help support development in their communities of origin. This is a replicable model that can be used in any village in Palestine.

Dalia Association invited Issam Bashiti from Arabs’ Got Talent to perform a piece of original poetry and presented him with a plaque to display our appreciation.

The event was generously hosted by Café La Vie who donated the use of the café and all the food and beverages. Other supporters include: Zoom Advertising, Terry Boullata, Azza Shoaibi, Mohammed Fawzi Ghanayem, and Nora Lester Murad.
