One of the earliest affiliates of the EFE Network, EFE-Palestine's first graduates completed their training in Gaza in 2006.

Today, EFE-Palestine operates in the West Bank, Gaza and Jerusalem, where it provides demand-driven training to youth with limited opportunity, and offers startup support to aspiring entrepreneurs.  It is the first EFE Affiliate to pioneer training in online freelancing for youth from communities where physical barriers limit their ability to find employment.
