For the Palestinians, olive oil is the reward of the autumn, the boast of the storeroom, the wealth of the family across centuries

Refutrees is a grass-roots initiative that aims to respond to community needs by building projects that are sustainable and conscious of the environment. Refutrees grew out of field research conducted in refugee communities in the West Bank and Lebanon.

Refutrees is part of the growing movement that seeks people-led, sustainable development for Palestinian refugees, helping end donor reliance through food sovereignty and green, social innovation

In critically observing existing development models on the ground that are donor reliant, Refutrees hopes to explore sustainable concepts that are holistic in their understanding of the needs of local communities.
