- Social Development Support: We hold youth development close to our heart and pride ourselves in our role as an important contributor to social development and job creation. In 2015 alone, we created more than 300 temporary jobs in the field of data collection for young Palestinian recent university graduates. We trained them in the research process and some of them also got the chance to be involved in-depth in the research topic. This enabled them to be more successful in their job search.
- Working experience in fragile conditions: As a company that operates throughout the West Bank, Gaza, Jerusalem, and the Middle East, Alpha is skilled at operating in volatile, post-conflict conditions. Drawing upon its large pool of experienced field researchers and its multiple field offices, Alpha has demonstrated experience working effectively in areas isolated by security restrictions and during periods of conflict or instability. Alpha is highly experienced in working in the West Bank and Gaza through its accomplished fulltime-based staff, who have led similar studies.
