Founded in 2007 by Hani Masri, a Palestinian-American businessman, Tomorrow’s Youth Organization (TYO) is a not-for-profit organization that “works in disadvantaged areas of the Middle East, enabling children, youth, and parents to realize their potential as healthy, active, and responsible family and community members.” In collaboration with An-Najah University and the Zafer Masri Foundation, TYO opened its first community development center in Nablus in 2008. The Nablus center provides educational, cultural, and recreational programming that engages youth and women from disadvantaged communities in Palestinian society, empowering individuals to strengthen their communities. TYO hopes that targeting women and young children will build their knowledge of health and education and will empower them to alleviate illiteracy and poverty within their communities.
