2015 Campaign & 7th Annual Fundraiser Dinner - Let’s Rebuild!   Held on 10 May, 2015 at Peninsula, Docklands.

About Us

Olive Kids is an Australian registered foundation that seeks to facilitate financial support, education & medical assistance to Palestinian children. Founded in 2007, Olive Kids is run by passionate volunteers from a range of professions. 

As a consequence of the occupation, Palestinian children are robbed of their childhood. They suffer emotionally, physically and psychologically – deeply impacting their progress and development.

Under occupation in Palestine or in the refugee camps, the living conditions deny these young kids the very basic rights of security, health care, access to education, freedom of movement and basic infrastructure. Generations of young children are forced to mature at a young age, traumatised by their daily experiences. In effect, these kids live no childhood at all.

Our Kids

At Olive Kids, we facilitate support to Palestinian Children not only in Palestine, but also refugees in neighbouring countries such as Jordan and Lebanon. The majority of Palestinians (3.7 million) are under the age of 25, and nearly 40% (2.5 million) are under 18, with the median age around 16.

Palestinian Children are under grim conditions: 

  • 11 out of 100 children under-five suffer chronic malnutrition including 11% in the West Bank and 10% in Gaza Strip
  • Infant mortality rate in Palestine reached 20 per 1000 live births between 2006 and 2010
  • 6 % out of the average number of children aged 5-14 years are working children paid or unpaid in 2010
  • In the 12 month period before July 2011, 3% of male children of 12-17 years were exposed to physical violence of the occupation forces and settlers and 6% were exposed to psychological violence
  • Children 12-17 years are often exposed to violence inside the household by one individual member of the household, psychological and/or physical violence
  • Detained children constitute about 4.4% of the total detainees in Israeli jails

Our Programs

Olive Kids established its orphan sponsorship program when it was founded in 2007.

The program started in collaboration with an East Jerusalem nursery - Emleson, and in 2010 with Al- Amal Institute for Orphans in Gaza, which has been the main focus in recent years. Gaza has seen a high number of orphaned children as a result of the frequent Israeli hostilities on the strip since 2008.
