Developing the outsourcing model and piloting expansion of an existing organization in Gaza
This activity aims to enable GGateway to improve its financial sustainability and include rapid IT skills development and a platform for recruiting private companies, which can outsource services to Gaza IT professionals. Additionally, the IPSD will help GGateway scaleup their operations in a sustainable manner by helping it enhance its operations, widen its client base, and increase placement rate of its alumni at local IT companies.
Gaza Gateway (GGateway) is a for profit, private IT outsourcing company and social enterprise with the mission to develop the potential human capital, particularly for disadvantaged youth. It is a women-led organization that maintains a high-level of female beneficiaries. GGateway is a spin-off company of the UNRWA, became an independent entity in 2015 – and is an organization that is central in the Gazan software development ecosystem – training university graduates and providing skilled workers to IT-related private companies.
As one of the main entities that supports freelancing/outsourcing to Gaza through its innovative business model, GGateway is expected to contribute to catalysing the entry and growth of IT-enabled businesses, by leveraging the thousands of unemployed technology graduates.
